The dramatic hostage-taking, chase and shooting was broadcast live by TV news helicopters.

At least one bullet flew toward Coral Gables City Hall across the street.

Billy Urquia, the Coral Gables city clerk , was in his private office when he heard a gun shot, then a second, and then the sound of a bullet piercing his window.

“The bullet ricocheted off the wall and landed on the floor,” Urquia said Thursday night. “The last one I heard was the one that came in.”

Urquia said he hurried outside his office to find a city security guard already on the phone with police. He estimated the bullet missed him by about two or three feet. A photo taken afterward shows the bullet hole looming over Urquia’s monitor, just below the window blinds. “No glass hit me,” Urquia said.

The UPS truck was carjacked soon afterward, although authorities didn’t say exactly where.

“The individuals abducted the driver of the truck as well as the truck itself,” Coral Gables Chief Edward Hudak said.

Police officers soon found the UPS truck, which made its way up the Florida Turnpike, then Okeechobee Road, then onto Interstate 75 into Broward County. The robbers apparently shot at cops during the chase.
