The road rage shooting incident that ended with 28-year-old Timothy Davison being fatally shot multiple times, despite his frantic 911 calls, has resulted in a road-rage homicide investigation and manhunt that is involving “a task force made up of Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia state police, as well as FBI agents,” reported CNN on Jan. 11, 2014.
The road rage incident began early on Saturday, Jan. 4, when Timothy Davison, who had visited relatives in Florida, was driving home to Poland in Maine.
According to authorities, “Davison may have first encountered the shooter on Interstate 70 in Maryland and traveled between 13 and 15 miles, with the gunman in pursuit, before being forced off the road just beyond the Pennsylvania state line.”
During the 15-mile pursuit by the road-rage killer, Timothy Davison called 911 from Maryland and Pennsylvania but by the time he had reached the Antrim Township in Pennsylvania, his Mitsubishi Montero was forced off Interstate 81, and he was fatally shot multiple times.
Timothy Davison made his first 911 call during the road rage incident as he crossed from Maryland to Pennsylvania but his first call, which was picked up by Maryland authorities, was dropped. During his second 911 call, Davison told the Pennsylvania 911 operator that he was being pursued and being shot at.
Pennsylvania State Police Capt. Steven Junkin did not provide any details about Timothy Davison’s 911 calls since the tapes were still being reviewed. However, he told reporters that “so far, there is no indication that Davison initiated the incident or provoked the shooter.”
Following the deadly road rage shooting incident, authorities are concerned that this might not be an isolated occurrence of a murderous highway killing and the FBI is seeking help from the public and operators of body shops in finding a "dark colored" Ford Ranger XLT pickup with damage on the driver's side from ramming into Timothy Davison's car. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-472-8477.
"How concerned are we that it'll happen again?" said Pennsylvania State Police Capt. Steven Junkin. "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. He murdered an individual for whatever slight that he perceived. Will this person do it again? We don't know. We don't want to take that chance."
