HARRISBURG—It’s been two years since a New Jersey man was shot to death along Interstate 81 in Dauphin County and police are still looking for his killer.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, Tyrone M. Shaw, 46, of Roselle Park, New Jersey, died Feb.4, 2019, on I-81 north at mile marker 75.4 in West Hanover Township.

Police said Shaw died from a single gunshot wound to the head after his SUV became disabled along the shoulder of the highway.
