Two of the first officers to make it to the scene of Wednesdays' deadly UPS shooting had to commandeer a passing car to help them get there.

Police say when the officers heard the shooting call on their radios, they got into their police cruiser- but it didn't start.

They flagged down a passing motorist, who got in the backseat while the officers drove past the police department. There, they found another police car and started it with a master key.

The vehicle they were originally driving was a 2009 model and had 107,000 miles on it. Police say it is rare for a patrol car with that few of miles to breakdown.

They say a spotlight was left on and drained the battery.
