Cocoa, Florida – On Tuesday the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office released dash cam video of a fatal officer involved shooting of two teenage suspects last week in Cocoa.

The suspects have been identified as 18-year-old Sincere Pierce and 16-year-old Anthony Crooms.

On Friday at about 10:30 am, deputies were conducting a stolen car investigation in the area of Stetson Drive and Ivy Drive in Cocoa. Dash camera video shows two sheriff units following the suspect car.  The vehicle turns around in a driveway and is facing the deputies.

Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said the video shows the vehicle, driven by Crooms, accelerating toward the deputy.

Ivey said the deputies ordered the driver to stop the car to stop seven times before the shots were fired.

“Angelo Crooms turns and accelerates the vehicle toward Deputy Santiago-Miranda who was then forced to fire his service weapon in an attempt to stop the deadly threat of the car from crashing into him,” Ivey said.

Sheriff Ivey stated two firearms were found inside the vehicle.
