Robeson County deputies are on the lookout for the person involved in a Lumberton road rage shooting on Interstate-95 that left a mother of six dead on Thursday morning.
Deputies were called out near the 23-mile marker near I-95 South just before noon. On arrival, deputies found Julie Eberly, 47, of Mannheim, Pennsylvania who had been shot through the passenger door. According to authorities, she was headed to the beach with her husband when the shooting happened.
Robeson County investigators learned that the victim’s vehicle came close to the suspect’s vehicle during a merge into lane. That’s when the suspect vehicle pulled next to the victim’s vehicle side and opened fire into the car.
Eberly was taken to UNC Southeastern Hospital where she later died. Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said Eberly leaves behind six children who he said were at home with their grandparents.
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.
