Carroll Township Police said Monday that Friday’s shooting in Monaghan Township may have been a road rage incident, but it was decidedly one-way.
“There’s nothing to indicate that he (the victim) provoked this incident,” Carroll Township Sgt. David Smith said.
Smith said the shooter “was tailgating the victim for a little bit and then opened fire, three shots in the cab area of the truck.”
Smith said the shooter’s truck was a black Nissan pickup truck, either a Frontier or Titan, with an extended or quad cab and no cap on the back.
After the shots were fired, the victim accelerated and didn’t look behind him to see where the shooter went, Smith said.
“He was extremely upset,” he said.
Smith said police were not releasing the victim’s name because the investigation is ongoing.
Smith said Carroll Township Police continue to work with Pennsylvania State Police and the FBI to see if there is a link between Friday’s incident and the shooting death of a man on Interstate 81 in Franklin County on Saturday.
Carroll Township Police are looking for whomever fired shots at another person during a road rage incident in Monaghan Township Friday evening, according to a news release.
An officer on patrol was alerted of the altercation in the 100 block of North York Road at about 6:45 p.m., police said.
The victim, a driver of a Dodge pickup, said he was being followed by a black pickup that was driving recklessly behind him, the release states.
The black truck pulled up beside his and an occupant fired several shots at the victim, striking the vehicle several times, police said.
One bullet just missed the victim’s head and was found in the driver’s side head rest, police said.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Carroll Township Police at 717-432-3317 or through York County 911 at 717-854-5571.
