4 people dead after a shoot out, including the jewelry thieves

Four people were killed in South Florida after two armed jewelry thieves hijacked a UPS truck along with its driver and led cops on a high-speed pursuit that ended when the vehicle got stuck in traffic Thursday afternoon.
The chase began in Coral Gables and ended 25 miles away on a busy street in Miramar, where a shoot out erupted once the truck couldn't go any further because of traffic.
Killed at the scene were the two suspects, the abducted UPS driver and a bystander who was inside an idle car near the mayhem.
The pursuit began shortly after a jewelry store in Coral Gables set off a silent alarm about 4.15pm, said Coral Gables Police Chief Ed Hudak.

A female employee in the store was found to have been shot in the head after a gunman's bullet ricocheted off the floor. She was later reportedly in stable condition.
One bullet was even found to have struck the Coral Gables City Hall.
Rush-hour had started when the truck made its getaway and as many as 40 emergency vehicles pursued.
