Bianca Nikol Roberson,18, executed by white male in road rage attack

Police are hunting for a man who shot and killed a teenage girl in a road rage attack after the two merged into the same lane on a highway in Pennsylvania.

Bianca Nikol Roberson, 18, of West Chester, Pennsylvania, was driving southbound late Wednesday afternoon when she and a man in a red pickup truck jostled for position on the road, reported NBC 10.

The truck’s driver became enraged and pulled out his gun, shooting Roberson directly in the head before fleeing the scene down the highway, according to police.

Roberson’s car then lost control and crashed into a wooded area near West Goshen. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

‘This was a totally random, senseless act of violence,’ District Attorney Thomas Hogan said during a Thursday night press conference.

Police found her green Chevy Malibu on Route 100, and initially thought she had lost control of her car, spun out and crashed. But a witness and surveillance footage revealed the truth.

The man suspected of shooting her is described as a white male with blond or light brown hair, between 30 and 40 years old with a medium build.

Police said he was driving a red Chevrolet pickup truck with faded paint. The two cars did not actually hit, so it is unlikely the truck was damaged at all in the incident.

A witness said the driver was seen fleeing the accident at a very high speed, according to police.

Family members told ABC6 she was on the way home from the mall, where she was shopping for college clothes with her mother and grandmother.

‘She was a good girl, honor roll student, looking forward to going to college,’ her father, Rodney Roberson, explained as he held back tears. Her brother said she was ‘headed for greatness’.

She graduated from Bayard Rustin High School three weeks ago, and was headed to Jacksonville University in the fall.

‘A young lady in the prime of her life getting ready to go off to college, and now the family has to consider burying her,’ West Goshen Police Chief Joseph Gleason said.

  1. Devin Williams, one of Roberson’s best friends and a grade below her at Bayard Rustin High School, cried at the funeral as she described how Roberson helped her deal with a difficult teacher during her freshman year.

    “I was texting Bianca, and about three minutes later, she shows up at the door and walks into the classroom,” Williams recalled. “When my teacher asked her where she was supposed to be, she sat down next to me, put her arm around me and said, ‘Right here.’” — (AP)

  2. Mourners gather, celebrate life of road-rage victim Bianca Roberson

    WEST CHESTER — The parents of a high school graduate killed during a road rage confrontation stood teary-eyed Friday as mourners held two folded tapestries in front of them at the end of their daughter’s funeral.

    As they unfurled the fabric, the sight of a sewn image of 18-year-old Bianca Roberson smiling and holding a red rose sent her mother, Michelle, face-down into her husband’s arms. She sobbed as a man wrapped the cloth around her shoulders.

    The service at St. Paul’s Baptist Church came a week and a half after Roberson and another driver engaged in what police called a high-speed “cat-and-mouse game” as they tried to merge into a single highway lane. It ended with the young woman shot in the head June 28.

    Officials said her car then veered off the road and struck a tree before settling in a ditch. The shooter fled along the shoulder of the highway in a red pickup truck but was arrested on Sunday.

    The West Chester church was packed with more than 300 people, many of them schoolmates of the victim. Wreaths of lavender and white flowers dotted the place of worship, as did photographs of a smiling Roberson.

    Speakers talked about her contagious smile, how excited she was to start college at Florida’s Jacksonville University in the fall and her goal of becoming a forensic agent in the FBI.

    It is getting harder to keep faith in a country where someone will do this to a kid..

    It’s even harder knowing that this would have turned out differently if the NRA didn’t make it easier for the bloodthirsty to kill at will..

    May young Bianca rest in perfect peace…and may God comfort and see her family through ..
