47-year-old Julie Eberly, the mother of six, is dead after being shot and killed in a road rage incident on I-95 near Lumberton, North Carolina.
Deputies were called out near the 23-mile marker near I-95 South just before noon Thursday. When deputies arrived, they found Julie Eberly of Mannheim, Pennsylvania, had been shot through the passenger side of the vehicle. She and her husband Ryan had celebrated their wedding anniversary Wednesday. They were headed to Hilton Head Island for a mini vacation.
A preliminary investigation revealed their vehicle was moving close to the suspect’s vehicle during a merge into the lane. That is when the suspect pulled next to Eberly and started shooting.
Eberly was taken to UNC Southeastern hospital, where she later died. Eberly leaves behind her husband Ryan and six children.
The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office is now asking for the public’s assistance in finding a 2010 model silver or grey Chevrolet Malibu or Impala with dark-tinted windows and chrome around the window frame. The vehicle was last seen traveling southbound down Interstate-95 to Exit 22.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office at (910) 671-3170 or call 911.
