— HARRISBURG, Pa.  — Police investigating the shooting death of a Maine man along an interstate highway in Pennsylvania said Tuesday they are scrutinizing a similar shooting that happened eight hours earlier and about 30 miles away.

State police said there are similarities between the shooting that took the life of 28-year-old Timothy Davison a few miles north of the Maryland state line early Saturday and Friday night’s shooting in which a bullet struck the driver’s head rest.

“Both investigations will be treated as being related until conclusive evidence proves otherwise,” the Pennsylvania State Police said in a statement that sought information from the public.

A task force of state troopers from Pennsylvania and Maryland and FBI agents was formed to track down who killed Davison along Interstate 81.

Davison was driving back to his home in Poland, Maine, after a holiday visit with relatives in Florida. He called 911 to report some sort of problem and that he was being chased and shot at by someone inside a dark-colored pickup truck, authorities have said.
