Maine Man Shot, Killed in Pennsylvania in Apparent Road Rage Attack


On Saturday, a 28-year-old man from Maine was gunned down in an apparent case of road rage.

The incident occurred on Interstate 81 in Antrim Township, Pennsylvania.

Shortly before the altercation, Timothy Davidson called 911 at approximately 2:00 a.m. to report a road-rage incident.  He told police that someone in a pickup was firing shots at him.

Davidson told the police that the suspect was driving a Ford Ranger-style pickup.

Pennsylvania State Police said that Davidson’s vehicle was forced into the median, where the vehicle became disabled.  Then the gunman began firing shots at him.

Authorities arrived and transported Davidson to a local hospital where he later died.

Police believe the suspect’s pickup may be blue and may have damage on the drive’s side.

“We still believe the suspects’ vehicle to be a smaller type pickup truck, possibly a Ford Ranger. The suspect’s truck should have some driver side damage to its door or front quarter panel,” State Trooper Rob Hicks said in a release. “The victim’s vehicle is silver, so the suspects’ vehicle might have silver paint transfer on its driver side from when the suspect rammed the victim’s SUV.”

Investigators are searching for evidence in the case and so far, no suspects have been announced.  

According to Fox 43, investigators believe the shooting may have been unprovoked– which has law enforcement worried.

Hicks told Fox 43, “This person is still on the loose and we don’t know when they might strike again and if they strike again.”

The Record Herald reported that police are investigating wether or not a shooting on Friday in York County is related.

On Friday, several shots were fired at a man in a Dodge pickup on North York Road.  One of the bullets hit the driver’s head rest.  The driver was not injured.

Carroll Township police reported that the shots may have come from a black Nissan pickup.
