According to the DAILY MAIL, seven bounty hunters have been indicted on first-degree murder charges after they killed the wrong man and wounded another.
The bounty hunters picked the wrong car in a Walmart parking lot in Clarksville, Tennessee.
Police reported that four innocent people were sitting in their car in the Walmart parking lot when the bounty hunters opened fire and then chased them for seven miles through the small town.
The men in the car thought they were being attacked by gang members and fled for their lives. None of the men in the car had any open warrants nor were they armed.
Bounty hunters are not allowed to use deadly force except in self-defense.
The seven men were all charged with first-degree felony murder, three counts of attempted second-degree murder, three counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, attempted especially aggravated kidnapping, four counts of aggravated assault, employing a firearm in commission of a dangerous felony and felony reckless endangerment, police said.
Bounty hunters have come under increasing criticism in recent years as similar incidents to the one in Tennessee have become more commonplace.
