Body camera video shows aftermath of Norton road rage shooting that killed Akron man

Police say they are still following up on leads as they try to find the person responsible for the fatal shooting of George 'Geo' Jensen.

NORTON, Ohio — Investigators from the Norton Police Department are continuing their search for the suspect who fatally shot 40-year-old George "Geo" Jensen in a road rage incident last week on I-76.

In the meantime, the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSP) has provided our first look at the aftermath of the shooting after releasing body camera footage on Thursday. (Editor's Note: Some of the video may be upsetting to watch)

The video shows OSP troopers walking up to Jensen's Mazda 3 and opening the car's doors. A few witnesses pulled over, telling law enforcement that they saw both drivers weaving through traffic, cutting one another off, just moments before the incident unfolded.

The incident happened on May 17 at around 5:35 p.m. as authorities say the Jensen was traveling eastbound on I-76 when the suspect in another vehicle “fired several gunshots at the victim’s vehicle.”  The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office says Jensen's vehicle came to a stop after it struck the concrete median.

Jensen was then taken to an Akron hospital with an apparent gunshot wound where he later died from his injuries at 6:14 p.m.

"Before the shooting, there appeared to be a road rage incident between the victim and another driver in a black 2018 or newer Chevy Camaro as the two traveled on Interstate 76," according to the Norton Police Department. "The driver of the Camaro fired multiple gunshots toward the victim's car as it drove past."

Police say the Camaro's driver was last seen leaving the area on I-76 East.

On Thursday, the Norton Police Department released the following statement about the status of the investigation: "The Norton Police Department is still in the process of following up on numerous leads on the Homicide that occurred on May 17, 2023 on Interstate 76. The Ohio State Patrol and Ohio Department of Transportation has released videos. We are still in the process of redacting our videos and will release them as soon as possible. We will send out an update as soon as we have one. We appreciate your patience."

Also on Thursday, 3News' Carmen Blackwell reached out to Tony Jensen, brother of Geo, after the video was released. He said while the family continues to follow up with police, "it's been pretty quiet" as far as any leads on a suspect.
