The FBI identified the two armed thieves who robbed a Miami jewelry store and took a UPS truck on a high-speed police chase that ended with 4 people dead, including the robbers.
The FBI identified the thieves as Lamar Alexander, 41, left, and Ronnie Jerome Hill, 41, of Miami-Dade County.
Coral Gables police chief Edward Hudak said two armed robbers robbed a jewelry store on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables at 4:17 p.m. Thursday.
After leaving the store empty handed, the thieves fled in a U-Haul truck. But they ditched the truck about a mile away, where they hijacked a UPS truck driven by Frank Ordonez, a 5 year UPS employee who was on his first day as a driver.
The police chase ended in a wild shootout at a busy intersection about 25 miles north of Coral Gables. Police fired an estimated 200 rounds at the truck which got stuck in traffic at a busy intersection in Broward County.
19 cops took up positions behind occupied civilian vehicles.
Killed in the shootout were Ordonez, 27, the two robbers and a civilian in a car.
Friends of Ordonez demanded to know why police failed to take proper precautions in a hostage situation.
Black Twitter users say the fact that the robbers are Black explains why the cops fired wildly at the UPS truck, without any regard for the civilians in the intersection.
The murders of Black unarmed men by white cops in America sparked the Black Lives Matter movement.
