Tennessee police say seven bounty hunters and bail bondsmen have been indicted on first-degree murder and other charges in the killing of an unarmed man and the wounding of another.
Authorities say 24-year-old Jalen Johnson and another man were wounded April 23 after the bounty hunters and bail bondsmen confronted Johnson and his three friends in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Clarksville. Authorities have said the bounty hunters and bail bondsmen chased the men for seven miles, putting the public at risk.
Johnson's family has said he was gunned down in a case of mistaken identity.
Police said that neither Johnson nor his three friends had outstanding warrants.
Clarksville is about 50 miles northwest of Nashville near the Kentucky state line.
