Police are still searching for the road rage killer who fatally shot a man on a Pennsylvania highway over the weekend and officials are warning people to be careful because the suspect could strike again.

Timothy Davison, 28, was driving back home to Maine after spending the holidays in Florida with his family when a pickup truck started tailgating him in the early hours of Saturday morning. Davison, who was driving on Northern Maryland's Interstate 81 at the time, reportedly called 911 to report the incident but was disconnected. He crossed the border into Pennsylvania and then called the emergency number again to say he was being shot at.

Police later found his body in his SUV, which was lodged in a snowbank on the side of a median in southern Pennsylvania, according to FoxNews.com.

Now, authorities are warning people to be on the lookout for the suspect, whom they said is considered armed and dangerous.

"The acts committed against Mr. Davison were random only to the point of his initial encounter with his assailant," the Pennsylvania State Police said in a statement Tuesday. "Beyond that, the acts against him were very deliberate, calculated, and violent. With that said, the potential for additional incidents of similar nature is anticipated due to the violent nature of this incident."

Police believe that the road rage killing may be linked to another shooting that took place in Monaghan Township, Pa., on Friday — about 30 miles from where Davison was gunned down.

"It's definitely something that is rare," Pennsylvania State Trooper Robert Hicks told FoxNews.com. "I can't say I’ve seen something like this before."

Hicks cautioned residents to keep an eye out for a dark-colored pickup truck with damage to the driver's side door and possibly even some silver paint from Davison's SUV on it.
