David Desper is being held without bail after turning himself in to the police. Desper is accused of murder in the death of Bianca Robertson, allegedly resulting from a case of road rage.
The 28-year-old man faces a slew of charges, including first-degree murder and reckless endangerment.
According to police, Desper (allegedly) shot Bianca Nikol Roberson after he became enraged. Why was he so angry? Apparently, it’s because both vehicles were trying to merge in the same lane on the highway. The shooting took place on Wednesday evening in West Goshen, Pennsylvania, just west of Philadelphia. Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said, “They jockeyed for position and he wasn’t happy, so he pulled out a gun and shot Bianca in the head, killing her instantly.”
Robertson’s car veered off the road and hit a tree. Meanwhile, Desper’s red pick-up truck “took off like a bat out of hell,” according to Hogan.
Hogan stated that the victim was killed by “a single round from a 40-caliber Smith & Wesson semi-automatic handgun.”
The handgun was discovered by police in Desper’s bedroom. According to police, he bought that weapon legally in November 2015 and has a permit to carry this firearm.
Hogan called the killing a “savage, senseless and brutal act.”
Police originally identified the truck and its owner via surveillance footage. They urged the suspect to turn himself in. Desper complied with orders, and turned himself in to police on Sunday at 2 A.M. EST.
Robertson had just recently graduated from high school. Family members say that this young lady had been shopping for college clothes with her mother and grandma not long before her death. She had aspirations to attend Jacksonville University.
Bianca’s dreams and life was cut short in an act of road rage.
