A Florida UPS Delivery Driver Killed by Police in Hostage Takeover

This is so sad.

An innocent UPS driver was taken hostage by two jewelry store robbers fleeing police in Miramar, Florida yesterday.

The gruesome gunfight was captured on live television and shows the police surrounding the hijacked delivery truck in the middle of busy traffic before opening fire, killing the suspects, the UPS driver & two other innocent ivilians.

A GoFundMe has been created by the family of Frank Ordoñez, the driver who was killed in this horrific tragedy.

It’s such a shame that innocent people were literary “caught in the crossfire.” Seems like there could have been a better way to end this. It is unclear if the suspects shot at police first but what is clear is that an innocent father of two, just working to make a living is no longer alive.

The community is questioning whether the correct police tactics were used.

Please check out the GoFundMe for Ordoñez which has already surpassed its $20,000 goal. Click here.

UPS issued a statement.

Could the police have handled this hostage takeover differently? Sound off in the comments!
