Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “WATCH police & robbers exchange gunfire in the middle of BUSY INTERSECTION after high-speed chase in Florida (VIDEOS)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The incident began unfolding at about 4 p.m. after police in Coral Gables responded to a silent alarm apparently set off by an employee of a jewelry store.

Just saw this live!! Police in Miramar, Florida opened fire while pursuing armed robbers who stole a UPS truck & were holding the driver hostage. During the shootout the driver fell out of the truck & appeared to be injured. They then cut the live feed pic.twitter.com/XhnKQjjDwx

Coral Gables Police Chief Ed Hudak said that the robbers were first confronted by the owner of the store, who apparently returned fire. A stray bullet pierced the wall of the local city hall, located just across the street from Regent Jewelers.

While it took a mere 90 seconds for officers to arrive at the scene, the thugs did not waste any time either, hijacking a UPS delivery truck and taking its driver hostage. An ensuing car chase spanning two counties saw the UPS truck running red lights and wreaking havoc at busy intersections before it ultimately came to a rush-hour showdown in the city of Miramar, about 20 miles north of Miami.
