The UPS truck and driver in this story was undoubtedly known to us, as he and his van were seized in the neighborhood in which we used to live.
Police kill gunman who carjacked a UPS truck and held driver hostage
By Lauren Hernandez, SFGATE
A gunman took a UPS driver hostage inside his truck, led police and sheriff’s deputies on a chase across San Jose, shot at officers and then engaged in a standoff Thursday night that ended with the safe release of the driver and the gunman getting fatally shot by a law enforcement officer.
The pair led deputies to Curtner Avenue and Communications Hill Boulevard, where they ditched the SUV and fled on foot, Cooks said. At some point thereafter, the pair came across a UPS truck with the driver still inside — and they carjacked the vehicle and held the driver hostage.
We ain’t missing California at all.
