Police: bounty hunters shot 2 men, one died; charges sought

Police in Tennessee say investigators believe bounty hunters shot two men in a wild incident last weekend that began in a Wal-Mart parking lot, fatally wounding one of them, but that neither was the person they were trying to serve with a warrant.

Clarksville Police spokesman Jim Knoll said his agency will ask a grand jury in Montgomery County on Monday to bring charges from the shooting. Authorities are releasing few details before the case goes to a grand jury.

The family of a man who was killed says out-of-control bounty hunters gunned down an innocent man in public. He was identified as 24-year-old Jalen Johnson. Police would not say how many bounty hunters were involved in the incident.

Clarksville is northwest of Nashville near the Tennessee line with Kentucky.
