ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is searching for the driver of a black Mercedes they say is involved in several violent road rage incidents.
The sheriff’s office says they’ve had four reports of road rage incidents on the east side of the county since Dec. 27 involving the vehicle, a black Mercedes, possibly a 2014 C250. It may have an international-style vanity plate attached to the front.
The first incident happened on Dec. 27 on State Road 417 at the Curry Ford Toll Plaza.
The second incident happened on Jan 21 in the area of northbound Goldenrod Road and East Colonial Drive. A deputy heard 10 gunshots fired and was flagged down by the victim.
The third incident happened in the area of the State Road 407-State Road 417 interchange on Jan. 25. The suspect fired six shots at another vehicle and then exited onto Dean Road.
The fourth incident happened at a gas station at 1451 North Dean Road.
In all of the incidents, according to OCSO, the driver of the suspected car fired shots at another vehicle. In the fourth incident, the suspect not only hit another second, unrelated vehicle, but also the outside of the gas station building.
“He is a menace and needs to be stopped,” the sheriff’s office said on Twitter.
The sheriff’s office released the above photo of what the vehicle looked like.
If you have any information, you are asked to call the Orange County Sheriff’s Office or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477).
