UPS driver Frank Ordonez, 27, was killed in a shootout after a truck hijacking while on the job in Miramar, Florida on December 5. The incident, which has received international news coverage, culminated in 18 law enforcement officers firing into the delivery vehicle. It is not clear whether any of the parties involved have retained lawyers.
The incident started in Coral Gables, an affluent suburb of Miami. Ordonez was working a different route due to a colleague who had called out sick and whose route needed coverage. While on the route, Ordonez’s UPS truck was hijacked at approximately 4:15 p.m. by Hill and Alexander, who had allegedly just robbed Regents Jewelry on Miracle Mile. Shots were reportedly fired during the robbery, although it isn’t clear whether anyone was hurt.
