(Allentown)  -- An autopsy is planned for a Maine man who was fatally shot in an apparent case of road-rage in Franklin County.

The autopsy on 28-year-old Timothy Davison took place at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest in Allentown. 

He was driving home to Maine on Interstate 81 in Antrim Township, after visiting relatives in Florida when he was killed early Saturday a few miles north of the Maryland line.

State Police, working with the FBI, are searching for a small dark-colored pickup truck with damage to the front quarter panel or driver's side door. It also may have silver paint scrapes from Davison's car. 

Investigators say the pickup driver apparently chased Davison following a road dispute and rammed his car onto the median strip, where the driver or a passenger shot him. 
State police are asking people to contact the Chambersburg barracks at 717-264-5161 if they have any information about the murder.
