HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Authorities found the vehicle used by the suspect in the fatal shooting of Maryland judge but asked the public to remain vigilant Saturday as they continued to search for the man.

Pedro Argote, 49, is suspected of shooting the judge to death in the driveway of his home hours after he ruled against him in a divorce case. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement posted on Facebook that the silver Mercedes pickup truck Argote was believed to be driving had been located in a wooded area in Williamsport, about 8 miles southwest of Hagerstown, where the judge received a shot outside his house.

“Anyone with information regarding Argote’s location is asked to immediately notify authorities,” the sheriff’s office said in its statement.
