FRANKLIN COUNTY, Pa. — Police in Pennsylvania have formed a multi-unit task force in hopes of finding and identifying an assailant that killed a Maine man in an alleged road rage incident.

Timothy Davison, 28, of Poland was killed along Interstate 81 in Franklin County on Saturday, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Pennsylvania authorities announced Tuesday a multi-unit task force, made up of Pennsylvania and Maryland troopers, the Carroll Township (Pa.) police department and the FBI, has been formed in a search for the shooter.

Pennsylvania police are investigating two road rage shooting incidents, including the one in which Davison was gunned down, that occurred within eight hours of each other and 30 miles apart on Jan. 4. It’s unclear whether the incidents are connected.

Davison had called 911 while heading northbound on I-81 and notified dispatchers that a Ford Ranger-style vehicle had been following him and firing a weapon at him. The incident occurred just north of the Maryland-Pennsylvania state line.

Pennsylvania authorities believe that someone in that state or Maryland knows who may be responsible for the crime, and are asking whether the general public knows anyone with violent tendencies who owns or operates a Ranger-style vehicle to contact 1-800-4PA-TIPS.
