An armed robbery and shootout in Florida turned into a high-speed police chase that crossed two counties Thursday evening and left four people dead, according to the FBI. Coral Gables Police said the incident started with a robbery at a jewelry store, where two suspects exchanged gunfire with a shop employee. The jewelry store’s silent alarm system brought law enforcement to the scene, but officials said the shop worker was the only one injured. The suspects then abducted a UPS driver at gunpoint and fled in the driver’s truck—prompting a police chase on Interstate 75 and into Broward County. The driver of the truck reportedly got off the interstate and drove into Pembroke Pines and Miramar with dozens of officers on its tail. The truck then got stuck at a traffic light, leading to shots being fired and the pursuit ending. FBI Special Agent in Charge George Piro said during a press conference that both suspects were killed, along with the UPS truck driver. A fourth victim, a bystander stuck idling in a car, was killed during the shootout in Miramar, about 20 miles north of where the incident began.
