    A bystander and the driver were killed? Cops just shooting at everything? I hope their families sue.

    Before you blame cops, who’s to say that the hijacker didn’t shoot the driver before taking the truck?

    There is a video Breaking911 Twitter. It looked the police shot the driver in a shootout. Prayers to the family.

    Was he a hostage or they didn't know or see the browns? Was he driving? So surreal and sad

    FBI Special Agent in George Piro, the head of the Miami field office, offered his condolences to the “innocent victims,” but declined to say whether police bullets killed them.

    “It would be inappropriate to discuss that,” Piro said at a Thursday-night press conference near the shooting scene in Miramar. “We have just begun to process the crime scene. It’s going to be a very complicated crime scene.”

    OK saw it on the CBS news.

    probably will have to wait a day or 2 before we get the full story.

    Sad. They just shot and shot and shot. Driver was trying to jump out. I hope ups can back this family up and win a lawsuit

    The bystander was probably driving in their car. What common disregard for the public with hundreds of rounds going off.

    I am shook man there is video all over Twitter. So sad. Purely speculation but looks to me like the cops killed the driver in the shootout.
