Police found Harvey in a hotel with a woman. He faces a first-degree murder charge.

On May 29, police in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, responded to a reported shooting on West Street. When officers arrived, they found Baird in the driver’s seat of a car with gunshot wounds, prosecutors said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators said a car driven by Harvey followed Baird for 40 minutes before the two cars exchanged gunfire.

Baird was able to drive for two blocks after the shooting but crashed into another truck.

Harvey was on bail in connection to a March shooting at the time of the deadly encounter, prosecutors said.
