WEST GOSHEN TWP., Pa. - Officials announced a man is charged in the shooting death of an 18-year-old during a road rage incident.
Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan announced at a press conference that David Desper, 28, of Trainer, turned himself in to police around 2 a.m. Sunday morning.
He is charged with 1st and 3rd degree murder for the shooting death of Bianca Roberson.
He was denied bail and is being held in Chester County prison.
Hogan also announced investigators recovered the truck and gun involved in the incident shortly after Desper turned himself in.
Roberson was killed in a road rage incident in West Goshen Township, just west of Philadelphia, Wednesday evening.
She and another driver in the pickup truck were traveling along Route 100 and were both trying to merge from two lanes down to one, into the same lane.
That's when the driver, identified as Desper in the pickup truck, shot Roberson in the head, killing her.
After the cars collided, Roberson's car left the roadway and hit a tree.
Police released a sketch of the suspect and officials had been looking for him and the truck since then.
Roberson had just graduated from Bayard Rustin High School. She was headed to Jacksonville University in Florida in the fall.
Family and friends remembered her during a vigil Friday night.
"The one thing we can all agree on is that Bianca had the type of personality that she just left memories with everybody," said Bianca's brother, Rodney Roberson.
