(Harrisburg) --State police have released a video in hopes of tracking down possible witnesses to the apparent road-rage slaying of a Maine man along an Interstate 81 in Franklin County four days into the new year. 

Twenty-eight-year-old Timothy Davison was driving home to Poland, Maine on I-81 in Antrim Township when he was killed. He had called 911 as he crossed into Pennsylvania from Maryland to report another driver was shooting at him. 

The video shows the suspect's vehicle and others after the victim was run off the road and just before the fatal shots were fired. Investigators believe several motorists may have seen the pickup and the suspect behind the wheel.  

“The video is being released, not so much to focus on the suspect’s vehicle, but more so to identify possible witnesses,” said Lieutenant Adam Kosheba, Commander, Criminal Investigation Section, Troop H, Harrisburg. "We believe several motorists traveling in Pennsylvania along Interstate 81 south in the vicinity of Exit 3 observed the victim’s vehicle in the median and possibly the suspect vehicle in the area at the time the homicide occurred.

"As you can see in the video, there are numerous vehicles that were driving in that area during the time span of this incident,” he added.  

Davison's family and the Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers organization are each offering a $10,000 reward.
