North Carolina police are looking for a suspect in Thursday’s apparent road rage shooting that left a Pennsylvania woman dead.
The unidentified driver reportedly shot passenger Julie Eberly, 47, on Interstate 95 in Lumberton. Eberly’s husband was attempting to merge when the suspect rolled down their window and fired at the couple’s passenger door, according to the Lancaster Daily Voice.
Eberly’s husband pulled over to seek help, but she was pronounced dead at the hospital. WPVI reported that the husband was not injured in Thursday’s shooting.
The Pennsylvania couple was reportedly on their way to the beach when the incident occurred. Providing a possible motive, police said the Eberlys unknowingly came too close to the suspect’s vehicle while merging, according to The Fayetteville Observer.
Witnesses told investigators the suspect vehicle was last seen taking Exit 22 and crossing the highway overpass heading toward Lumberton. Detectives are reportedly reviewing footage taken as far as Interstate 95 south in Nash County.
Police described the suspect’s vehicle as a silver or gray 2010 Malibu or Impala with dark tinted windows and chrome around the window frame.
WMBF reported that the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to Eberly’s killer’s arrest.
