AKRON, Ohio — The family of George "Geo" Jensen, the man shot and killed in an apparent road rage incident on I-76 east in Summit County on Wednesday, is pleading for answers.
The suspect is still at large.
Geo's younger brother Tony tells 3News that their family is very close. Now, they're trying to make sense of a senseless act of violence.
"It's been rough and we're just trying to support one another," Tony says.
Tony tells us that he knew something was off when he got a text from Geo's wife Allison saying that Geo hadn't returned home from work yet.
An hour and a half had passed -- still no word from Geo. The family searched the internet for crash reports and discovered an accident involving a blue Mazda on I-76 east.
Norton police say the incident happened around 5:35 p.m. As Geo Jensen was traveling eastbound on the interstate, the suspect in another vehicle “fired several gunshots at the victim’s vehicle.” The Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office says Geo's vehicle came to a stop after it struck the concrete median.
Close family and friends rushed to be with Geo's wife as they waited for police, who eventually showed up to tell them that the 40-year-old Geo was fatally shot on the freeway he takes to get home.
"We're all just trying to be there for Allison right now," Tony adds. "This has been the toughest for her."
Until Norton police find answers, Tony says their family hopes Geo's death brings more awareness to gun violence and the dangers on the roadways.
"You know someday, someone you know is going to die. You just never see it happening this way," says Tony. "I don't see how people could feel safe right now knowing that this guy who just randomly shoots on the highway is still out there."
Tony adds that the family has been in contact with the Norton Police Department. Investigators say for now, the only information they have right now is the make and model of the suspect's vehicle -- a black Camaro.
The Jensen family asks if you if you have any information, please contact Norton police. There is a GoFundMe set up to help pay for Geo's funeral costs.
