Father of road rage victim expresses anger as manhunt continues
WPVI-TV(PHILADELPHIA) — The father of 18-year-old Bianca Nikol Roberson, who was shot and killed in an apparent road rage incident on Wednesday, expressed anger to ABC News over his daughter’s death.
“What can you say to a person like that?” Rodney Roberson told ABC News about the shooter, who is still being pursued by police.
A manhunt across three states is underway to find the man who gunned down Roberson, a recent high school graduate who her father says had ambitions of studying forensics for a career in law enforcement.
“She was a beautiful girl,” Roberson said of his daughter.
The shooter, in a red pickup truck, had attempted to merge into the same southbound lane as Roberson on Route 100 in Chester County when the situation turned deadly, ABC station WPVI-TV reported.
“They were jostling for a position or whatever, and unfortunately this gentleman took it to a degree that was just unconscionable,” West Goshen Police Chief Joe Gleason said, according to WPVI.
Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said the shooter — described as white, 30 to 40 years of age, medium build with blonde hair — pulled out a gun and shot Roberson in the head, killing her. Her car then veered off the road and crashed.
Hogan made a public plea for the driver to come forward immediately, and added that police are hunting him across three states.
Roberson had been returning from buying new clothes for college when she was killed, according to WPVI-TV.
“I’m angry. My family is angry,” Roberson said of his daughter’s death.
Police are saying that the pickup truck is possibly a Chevy, and the driver is considered armed and extremely dangerous.
