A 17-year-old suspect is in custody after Ocoee Police say he drove a stolen car at an officer conducting a nearby traffic stop.

According to police, an officer with the City of Ocoee Motorcycle Unit was conducting a traffic stop in the parking lot of Advance Auto Parts on North Apopka Vineland Road at 8:44 a.m. Tuesday, July 17. 

The officer then noticed a stolen vehicle in the parking lot, occupied by the teenage suspect, while investigating the unrelated traffic infraction.

During the investigation police said the suspect, Ocoee resident Rosner Oscar, drove at the officer and crashed into him, his motorcycle and the vehicle the officer originally stopped. The officer then fired shots at the Oscar, police said, who then fled the scene in the stolen vehicle.

Oscar headed southbound on North Apopka Vineland Road, crashed into another car and was taken into custody by an Orange County Sheriff’s Office deputy, police said. There were no injuries in either the shooting or the crashes.

Police are withholding the name of the officer involved in the shooting while the investigation is being conducted.
