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
So the the robbery that turned to a high-speed chase that turned to a shootout on Miramar Pkwy ended up with the robber dead and the UPS driver that was hostage.. thats crazy how fast this escalated pic.twitter.com/JHNK3XHh7P
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.

Miami Dade County police officers open fire against two robbery suspects inside a UPS truck. Four people were killed: the two robbers, a UPS driver who was taken hostage and a bystander. pic.twitter.com/aqZM4xgi6T— Santi bel (@santibel9) December 6, 2019
Getting into a shootout on a crowded highway that ends with a dead UPS driver. Miramar police using pedestrian vehicles as cover from gunfire. All over stolen jewelry. Ridiculous. https://t.co/0HpRLURApe— sensitive kev (@kobthatreal) December 5, 2019

Cops just unloaded on an innocent UPS driver that was hostage in an armed robbery. You can watch the video for yourself pretty graphic. This happened in Miami. pic.twitter.com/OB3W35D3Dz— Kluebtorious (@rklueber28) December 5, 2019
Oh shut up. You endangered multiple innocent bystanders and cilivians by hiding behind/using their moving cars as shields in a shootout. Not to mention you killed an innocent UPS driver that was being held hostaged trying to escape the gunfire ????????— Indigo Season????????????????????⚛???? (@Shorty2222) December 6, 2019
Yeah, just injured innocents because of piss-poor tactics. Pathetic.#ToServeAndPROTECT— Nunya Bidness (@twyttrsuksballs) December 6, 2019
They killed the UPS driver & the suspect, in that situation how do you defuse the situation if the suspect has been firing at the officers, curious to hear y’all thoughts if it could’ve been handled differently❓— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) December 5, 2019
