The sheriff’s office said a North Carolina man was shot and killed for shooting a six-year-old mother in a road rage incident last week.
Julie Eberly, 47, from Mannheim, Pennsylvania, was killed when her mother, who was only 6 years old at the time, celebrated her wedding anniversary during a trip.
The Robertson County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that 29-year-old Dejywan Floyd of Lomberton was in an apartment building in Lomberton after 12:30 on Thursday morning. Nei was arrested, charged with first-degree murder and put weapons into occupied property.
He was accused of pulling up a car near the GMC Yukon where Eberly and her husband were, rolling down the window and firing at the passenger side of the couple̵
According to the county detention center, Freud was not detained on Thursday. It is not clear whether he has a lawyer. Can’t find his home phone number.
Ryan Eberly said that before the shooting, he accidentally cut off a driver in the south of I-95, forcing the car to lean on his shoulder. The car returned to the right and the gun went off.
“In three minutes, my whole world was turned upside down, and I don’t know why,” Eberly told WGAL, the NBC subsidiary of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Ryan Eberly told WGAL: “I saw in the mirror that he was driving past us and shot to the right. Our car was hit. My wife yelled my name and I asked her Was it hit? She said yes.”
The sheriff’s office said he stopped on the interstate and medical assistance arrived. His wife was taken to the hospital and died.
Ryan Eberly was not injured. The couple drove to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for vacation. Robesson County is adjacent to the border of South Carolina.
Robertson County Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said in a statement that surveillance video from businesses and residents is essential to follow Freud’s actions. The sheriff’s office provided a distributed photo of the car that investigators were looking for and donated $20,000 as a reward.
Wilkins said in the statement: “No matter what the circumstances, no one should be murdered.”
