Man Shoots and Kills High School Grad in Road Rage: Police

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 RobersonBianca 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. *

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.

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.

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

Why can’t that DA say, “This guy is obviously a total psycho who shouldn’t be allowed within a mile of a firearm. We need to face up to the manifest idiocy of our 2nd Amendment gun-carrying laws.”

    • It must be heart-breaking for the family. I don’t mean to be ghoulish in posting these tragic items. It’s just that I’m tired of hearing criticism in foreign media about how dangerous Turkey is. I feel safer in Istanbul than I do when I’m in Auckland or Sydney. I’ve decided to start using a category I’m calling “Christianic terrorism”.
