Four people, including the UPS driver, are dead after a police chase involving a stolen package delivery truck ended in a shooting Thursday night.

According to the FBI, the incident started when two armed suspects robbed the Regency Jewelers in Coral Gables at about 4:15 p.m. As the suspects ran from the scene, they hijacked a UPS truck and kidnapped the driver, prompting a chase.

When the truck eventually stopped, both the suspects and law enforcement exchanged shots. The shooting killed both suspects, the UPS driver and an innocent bystander at the scene.

Federal agents say it is too early to tell how the driver and the bystander were fatally shot.

The innocent bystander was shot and killed at the location where the chase ended, according to federal agents. The FBI is leading the investigation on this deadly incident.
