MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The man who was killed during a possible road rage incident on I-240 near the flyover has been identified.

He was identified as 22-year-old Reginald Burke Jr.

Tarrance Dixon, 21, and Robert Chaney, 21, were both charged with second-degree murder in connection with the shooting.

A third person was released.

Police said Chaney was driving Monday night when they got into a dispute with the victim near the flyover.

Dixon was the one who police say shot Burke.

A school resource officer was on his way home heading eastbound when he was flagged down on I-240 East near the off-ramp to I- 40 East.

Burke told the officer he had been shot by someone in a white Ford Explorer.

After the incident, officers were called to Maria and Macon.

Police told WREG someone followed the shooter's car and led police there.

The victim was rushed to the Regional Medical Center in critical condition where he later died.

On Tuesday, we went by Chaney's home and his foster brother answered the door.

He said he isn't sure what led to the incident.

"I don't even know what happened. I just know they say he got locked up. That's all I know. I don't want to do no talking," he said.

After the incident additional officers were assigned to the interstate to help keep the peace, but drivers are still scared.

β€œIt’s just sad that it's no peace anymore,” said Gina Castillo.

If police confirm this is a road rage incident, it will the fourth since the beginning of the year with the last one happening on March 7.

On that day, a man was shot as he was getting off I-40 at Warford.

On March 4, a woman was at I-240 near Airways when shots were fired by another driver.

On January 29, a similar incident happened at the Sam Cooper exit on I-40.

No arrests have been made in any of those cases.

Memphis Police said you can help avoid road rage incidents by following some simple tips.

When merging off the interstate or changing lanes, make sure you have plenty of room, and use your turn signal.

If there isn't enough time or room, wait until the other vehicle has cleared.

If you make a mistake and accidentally cut someone off, try to visibly apologize to the other driver.
