Police have made an arrest in the road rage shooting that claimed the life of a recent high school graduate in Pennsylvania.

David Desper, 28, of Trainer, Pennsylvania, is charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bail in the shooting of 18-year-old Bianca Roberson.

Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said Desper surrendered around 2 a.m. Sunday. Desper's truck was recovered by police, along with the gun that detectives believe Desper used to shoot Roberson in the head.

Roberson was killed Wednesday on Route 100 in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania. Roberson and the driver of a red pickup truck were trying to merge into the same lane before the incident turned deadly.

"They were jostling for a position or whatever. And unfortunately this gentleman took it to a degree that was just unconscionable," said West Goshen Police Chief Joe Gleason.

Authorities had released this sketch of the suspect.

Roberson had recently graduated from Bayard Rustin High School in West Chester. She was set to attend Jacksonville University in the fall.
