Police have been searching for the assailant in a “road rage” incident that killed Maine resident Timothy Davison. Davison called police while driving north on I-81 early Saturday morning, telling them a blue pick-up was chasing him and an occupant of the vehicle was shooting at him. The driver then allegedly rammed Davison’s SUV into the median, disabling it, before shooting multiple rounds into Davison’s vehicle.

Davison died of his injuries later at York Hospital.

Police have formed a multi-state task force to investigate the shooting, and had units at the scene on Wednesday morning, “further investigating,” according to PSP Trooper Robert Hicks.

Police termed the attack a random act, until the initial contact with Davison. After that, police said the shooters actions were “very deliberate, calculated and violent,” according to a release.

Police are asking that anyone who has seen or knows anyone with a Ford Ranger-style truck with damage to the driver’s side and who has violent tendencies to please call PA Crime Stoppers at (800) 472-8477.
