UPS driver Frank Ordonez, a 27-year-old father of two, was scheduled to be off and had clocked in to cover a friend’s shift on the day he was killed by police in late 2019. At the precise moment of his death, Ordonez was being held hostage when several members of various police departments unloaded their weapons into his truck. Now, his family is suing.
The 34-page complaint was filed in Broward County, Florida on Monday by Ordonez’s estate and another victim of the shootout, Carlos Lara. The lawsuit names the Miami-Dade Police Department, Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Highway Patrol and the police departments of Miramar, Doral and Pembroke Pines as defendants.
