Authorities have released more details, including the victim’s name, concerning a Saturday night highway shooting.

Police are seeking information on a dark-colored or possibly black sedan that was traveling southbound on Route 95 South through Foxborough when the driver fired multiple rounds into a black Mercedes just before 10 p.m., killing that driver, according to Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey.

The Mercedes then reportedly swerved into a Lexus SUV being driven by a family, causing the Lexus to crash into the woods off the highway; the Mercedes then apparently swerved again, striking the center guard rail before coming to rest on the highway. Occupants of the Lexus did not suffer life threatening injuries.

The driver of the Mercedes, 37-year-old Justin R. Parker of Chestnut Street in North Attleborough, was transported to Sturdy Memorial Hospital but did not survive his injuries.

“We are asking anyone who may have seen any part of this incident, or who may have seen one or more dark-colored sedans operating erratically or at a high

rate of speed on Rte. 95 before or after the area of Exit 16 to call 781-327-9801 and speak with State Police assigned to the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office,” District Attorney Morrissey said. “Anyone with information or suspicion as to possible involved vehicles or parties should contact investigators as soon as possible.”
