FBI, Police Search For Suspect In Fatal Road Rage Incident
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Road rage killer. A gunman chases a driver through Maryland into Pennsylvania, then opens fire on his car–killing him. Now a task force, including the FBI and Maryland State Police, is trying to hunt down that killer.
Meghan McCorkell has the latest on the investigation.
Investigators say the victim frantically called 911 multiple times as another driver pulled out a gun and started firing at his car.
Inside a vehicle along I-81 in Pennsylvania, police found the body of 28-year-old Timothy Davison. He had been shot multiple times.
On Jan. 4 at 2:10 a.m., Davison called Maryland 911 dispatchers to report an aggressive driver chasing him along I-270 near Hagerstown onto 81 northbound across the Pennsylvania line.
It was there investigators say the dark pickup truck ran Davison off the road, opened fire and killed him.
A Maryland State trooper was the first to arrive. The driver of the pickup took off, headed back toward Maryland.
“We obviously have an individual out there who was so incensed that he continued to pursue Mr. Davison and took it to that next step,” said Pennsylvania State Police Commander Steven Junkin.
The gunman is believed to be driving an older model Ford Ranger XLT pickup, possibly blue with damage on the driver’s side and silver paint scratches.
Drivers here in Maryland say they’re nervous that that gunman still hasn’t been caught.
“Of course it scares me. I wouldn’t want to be on the road with an aggressive driver that would do something like that,” said one.
“It’s just a shame that stuff like this continues to go on. People don’t have a lot of courtesy for others,” said another.
Davison’s family members are in shock.
“He just didn’t want anything to do with guns, violence,” said his mother, Theresa Alloca. “And that’s one reason why this is so horrific.”
Now they want the gunman behind bars.
Investigators are asking body shops in Maryland and Pennsylvania to be on the lookout for a pickup truck matching the suspect’s description.
Davison was driving home to Maine from Florida, where he had been visiting family over the holidays.
