    The UPS employee who died after his truck was hijacked was covering the route for another driver, brother says - CNN

    UPS employee Frank Ordonez was killed Thursday after armed robbery suspects hijacked the UPS truck he was driving and led police on a chase that ended in a fatal shootout in Broward County, Florida, his brother said.

    Ordonez, a 27-year-old father of two young girls, was "outgoing and happy," his brother, Roy Ordonez, told CNN. "You never knew when he was sad."

    Frank Ordonez liked to fish and to play basketball and video games, his brother said. But "most of all," he said, "what Frank really liked to do is spend time with his daughters," ages 3 and 6 years old.

    When the hijacking unfolded, Ordonez was covering the route for a driver who had called out, his brother said.
