Fox 8 - On May 9, troopers were called to the area of the turnpike near SR-4 around Groton Township at 7 p.m. after the victim called in the shooting.  “The victim was being tailgated by another vehicle and he kind of decided to hit his brakes and kind of escalated the situation which ultimately resulted in a shooting,” said Sgt. Ryan Purpura.
