Tampa, Florida -- Tampa police are continuing their search for a driver who took off during a traffic stop late Sunday night.

It happened at the intersection of Rome and Green streets. Police say the driver would not stop, so they tried to box the car in.

That's when they say the driver came straight toward an occupied police cruiser. One of the officers fired shots at the driver, but missed.

The car took off, and was later found abandoned.
