Pennsylvania man arrested in road rage killing of recent high school graduate

Update: The suspect in the deadly road rage incident that left 18-year-old Bianca Roberson dead has turned himself in. David Andrew Desper, 28, surrendered to authorities early Sunday (July 2), for the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Bianca Roberson.

Roberson was returning from a shopping trip on Wednesday (June 28) evening when she and Desper apparently attempted to merge into the same lane. "This appears to be a savage, senseless and brutal act from one human being to another human being".

They also confiscated the red pick up truck he was driving when he encountered the teenager at the interchange of Route 100 and Route 202.

TIME reports that she was slated to attend Jacksonville University in the fall.

Roberson, a West Chester resident, was found dead inside her 2009 Chevy Malibu. As Desper, who was driving a red pickup truck, crossed into the lane on his right, Roberson, driving a green Malibu, crossed into the lane at nearly the same time.

David Desper is being held without bail after turning himself in to the police. Roberson was killed when she was struck in the head, and Desper drove away.

Court records show Desper has been charged with first-degree murder, third-degree murder, criminal homicide, possession of an instrument of crime and recklessly endangering another person. He had bought in legally in November 2015 and had a permit for it, Hogan said.

"We got a crucial piece of evidence from Bianca herself, because the round recovered from her was reviewed by a forensic ballistics expert who told us that that round came from a 40-calibre Smith and Wesson semi-automatic handgun", Hogan said. "To that man who fired that shot, turn yourself in now". "Every second you are out there you are only making this worse for yourself and making this worse for this young lady's family".

Roberson's death is the latest tragedy for her family; the teen's 22-year-old brother died from heart disease a few years ago.

She had hoped to work for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, her father said.
