Police are searching for a gunman who they say shot and killed a Maine man after ramming him off an interstate highway in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania state police say 28-year-old Timothy Davison died early Saturday following the shooting on the side of Interstate 81 near Antrim Township.

Trooper Rob Hicks, a spokesman, said Davison called 911 as he crossed from Maryland into Pennsylvania. Hicks said he’s not sure if Davison reported that someone had hit the brakes or cut the other person off.

But he said Davison mentioned some type of dispute, and said someone was firing a gun at him.

Police believe the driver of an unidentified pickup truck rammed Davison’s SUV, forcing the vehicle to get stuck in a snow-covered median along the highway.

Hicks told the Kennebec Journal that the gunman then got out of the truck and fired “multiple shots” into the SUV. Davison died a short time later after being taken to a local hospital.

“I think we can call it a road rage incident,” Hicks said. “At this point we haven’t found anything that would connect the two men.”

No arrests have been made in the shooting and Hicks said no witnesses have come forward as of Sunday night. Authorities have asked the FBI to assist in the investigation.

Hicks would not reveal how many times Davison was shot or what type of firearm was used. An autopsy was planned for Monday, the Kennebec Journal reports.

Hicks told the newspaper that police are looking for a dark-colored pickup truck, possibly a Ford Ranger, with damage to the driver’s side. Authorities are also looking at bullet fragments hoping to identify the gun’s owner.

The shooting may be connected to another shooting Friday involving a pickup truck in Monaghan Township, Pa., about 30 miles away from the highway shooting, Hicks added.

Davison was driving home to Poland, Maine, after visiting his sister during the holidays in the Orlando, Fla., area.

Davison’s mother, Theresa Allocca, said Sunday that she hopes the killer is brought to justice.

“I just hope this doesn’t happen to anyone else. This wasn’t just road rage. This person is obviously crazy,” Allocca told the Kennebec Journal.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to contact Pennsylvania State Police at 717-264-5161.
