CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Investigators are listening closely to a 911 call made before a man was shot to death in an apparent road rage incident on Interstate 81 in Franklin County early Saturday.

Timothy Davison, 28, was driving home to Poland, Maine after visiting family over the holidays when he called 911 just after 2 a.m. to report that a Ford Ranger-style truck was following him in the northbound lanes just past the Maryland line.

Davidson said someone in the truck was firing shots, and operators listened as his SUV was rammed before it spun out of control and became disabled in the median, according to police.

Investigators said the unknown person got out of the truck, approached Davison and fired several rounds into his silver 2001 Mitsubishi Montero.

Davison died of his injuries at York Hospital.

Authorities believe the shooting was a random act and that Davison did not know his killer.

Police also are trying to determine whether the incident is connected to another suspected road rage shooting in York County seven hours earlier.

Carroll Township police said several shots were fired into an occupied vehicle in the 100 block of North York Road in Monaghan Township at around 6:45 p.m. Friday.

The victim in that case reported that his truck was recklessly followed by a black Nissan pickup truck which then pulled next to him before someone in it fired several shots, police said.

One of the rounds narrowly missed the victim's head and was found near the head rest, police said.
