The pair, 33-year-old Gabriel Bernal and 54-year-old Fidel Garcia, tracked their fugitive, Ramon Michael Hutchinson, also known as Raymond, to Greenville.
Garcia and Bernal drew their weapons and Hutchinson responded by drawing his own pistol, which he dropped, according to a statement from Greenville spokesperson Kathy Lucas.
The Dallas Morning News reports the video shows two armed men cornering a third man in a glass office at the dealership.
As many as 20 shots were fired in a span of roughly six seconds as customers and employees ducked for cover.
Kevin Reece, a reporter for WFAA-TV, reported that those killed are believed to be two bounty hunters and their target.
Greenville police said they were not alerted about the planned arrest beforehand.
"We referred the case to them once we found probable cause that Mr. Hutchinson could be in Texas", Peters said.
The men fought as the suspect grabbed the gun and began firing.

Hundreds of people have been evacuated London's Old Vic Theatre during a performance and police say they are on the scene. Greater Manchester Police did not reveal where it was taken or at what stage of the evening.
The two men have been identified as Felix Garcia Jr. and Gabe Verbal both from Corpus Christi, TX.
Some time around 7 p.m., the man they were waiting for did arrive. She didn't see the men who were shooting, Cano said.
Ruse: Garcia and Bernal apparently told dealership employees they were federal agents, which they were not.
The Nissan dealership owner says the two men arrived Tuesday afternoon identifying themselves as federal agents.
The two investigators were reportedly at the dealership for three to four hours before they were successful in luring the girlfriend and fugitive to the location.
"There are three families mourning the loss of life today", said Stew Peters, a bail investigator with the private Minnesota-based company U.S. Fugitive Recovery and Extradition.
Only three types of people can serve a bond warrant: a peace officer, a commissioned security officer or a registered private investigator. He said he would've done things differently just knowing the basics of what happened.
