A mother of six was killed in a road rage incident as she and her husband were headed to Hilton Head Island, SC to celebrate their wedding anniversary, cops said.
Julie Eberly, 47, was shot through the passenger door while her husband Ryan was driving on Interstate 95 in Lumberton, NC on Thursday, according to the Robeson County Sheriff.
Julie was taken to the hospital, where she died. Ryan was not injured.
“We continue to search for clues leading to the identity of the coward suspect that shot and killed Julie Eberly yesterday along I95 in Lumberton,” Robeson County Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said.
“Homicide Detectives have worked non stop and are continuing their efforts to locate video footage and are currently reviewing hours of footage as I write this.”
The Pennsylvania couple marked their anniversary last week and were headed to the beach to celebrate for the weekend.
Their vehicle had come close to another car as Ryan Eberly was attempting to merge. The driver of the other vehicle then moved closer and rolled down his window before firing “multiple shots” into the car, cops said.
“This was an innocent family from Pennsylvania headed to the beach for a vacation,” Sheriff Wilkins said.
“Thankfully they had left their six children at home with grandparents but now these kids have to live with the thought of their mother being murdered in such a cowardly and senseless way.”
