Police: man pursued, shot to death on I-81

GREENCASTLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

State police say a 28-year-old man is dead after a pickup truck driver ran him off the road on Interstate 81, then got out of the truck and shot him several times.

Authorities said the victim—identified as Timothy Davison of Poland, Maine—was traveling north when he called 911 to report that he was being pursued by a Ford Ranger truck. He told police that the occupant was firing a weapon at him.

The driver then rammed Davison's vehicle, forcing him into the median. While Davison's vehicle was disabled, the man in the truck approached the victim and shot him several times.

Davison later died at York Hospital.

The suspect vehicle is a Ford Ranger-style truck, possibly blue in color, with damage to the driver's side.

State police ask anyone that may have information about this case to contact investigators at the Chambersburg station at 717-264-5161.
