Massachusetts State Police are investigating a Foxborough shooting on the highway that left a North Attleborough man dead on Saturday night, officials announced.

Police said patrols responded to a shooting on Route 95 southbound around 10 p.m. Saturday night. Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey said the driver of a dark-colored or possibly black sedan traveling southbound fired multiple rounds into a black Mercedes.

The Mercedes, being driven by Justin R. Parker. reportedly swerved into a Lexus SUV, causing it to crash into the woods of the highway, officials said. The family reportedly inside of the Lexus did not suffer life-threatening injuries, police said.

The Mercedes allegedly swerved again and struck the center guard rail before stopping on the highway. Parker was found by troopers and was pronounced deceased upon his arrival at Sturdy Memorial Hospital, police said.

“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,” Morrissey said. “Anyone with information or suspicion as to possible involved vehicles or parties should contact investigators as soon as possible.”

The ongoing investigation includes efforts from the state police department’s Detective Unit for Norfolk County and the department’s Crime Scene Services Section. Both entities have responded to the scene, officials said.
