A multi-state manhunt is underway after Bianca Roberson, a recent high school graduate was gunned down and killed in an apparent road rage incident earlier this week. The murder occurred on a highway outside Philadelphia.
Roberson, 18, was traveling in her vehicle in West Goshen on Wednesday when she was shot. She then veered off the road and was later found in a ditch, authorities said. The shooting suspect fled in a red pickup truck.
Roberson had just graduated from Bayard Rustin High School in West Chester. She was headed to Jacksonville University in Florida in the fall. “Bianca had her whole life ahead of her,” said West Chester Area School District Superintendent Jim Scanlon. “What should be a time of great joy and celebration in a young person’s life has turned into a horrible tragedy.”
District Attorney Thomas Hogan called the shooting road rage and a “totally random, senseless act of violence.”
Authorities said the driver is man of medium build, 30 to 40 years old with blond or light brown hair. His truck was described as a small, red Chevrolet pickup with faded paint.
