Family and friends gathered in the area of Miramar Parkway and Flamingo Road to pay tribute to Frank Ordonez, Saturday evening

The 27-year-old was held hostage by two armed robbers during a police pursuit throughout South Florida.

Authorities said Ordonez was killed in a shootout between the hijackers and police.

The chase began after the men robbed Regent Jewelers in Coral Gables, then hijacked Ordonez’s truck.

Another innocent driver, 70-year-old Richard Cutshaw, also lost his life that day.
