Suspect Who Shot And Killed HS Grad Turned Himself In, Charged!

Bianca Roberson

18-year-old recent high school graduate Bianca Roberson's life was cut short when 28-year-old David Desper shot and killed her over a road rage incident that occurred Wednesday June 28th. "As Bianca was merging from two lanes to one, there was a man in a red  pick up truck also merging down and they jockeyed for position and he  wasn't happy," District Attorney Tom Hogan said. "So he pulled out a gun and shot Bianca in  the head, killing her instantly."

Desper surrendered Sunday morning around 2am. 6ABC Action News was on site when the suspect's red pickup truck was recovered.


Detectives also recovered a 40-caliber semi-automatic handgun from Desper's bedroom, which they believe was used to shoot Roberson in the head.

Desper has since been arrested and charged with first and third degree murder.

Roberson was a recent graduate of Bayard Rustin High School in West Chester and was set to attend Jacksonville University in the fall. Her  brother told Action News she was "headed for greatness."
