David Desper, 28, has been charged with the road rage killing of 18-year-old Bianca Roberson. He turned himself in to police early Sunday morning.

Desper, of Trainer, Penn., has been charged with first degree murder and is being held in the Chester County jail without bail.

Desper shot Roberson after investigators say the two played a game of “cat and mouse,” while attempting to merge into the same lane on Route 100 in Chester County at about 5:30 p.m. on June 28th, NBC Philadelphia reports.

Roberson was shot in the left side of the head as she returned home from a shopping trip. She was set to begin college later this summer.

Roberson was pronounced dead at the scene after her car was found in a ditch.

Desper, who has a license to carry, fled the scene after shooting Roberson. Police believe a Smith and Wesson .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun was used in the road rage shooting as a result of the bullet’s markings. A similar gun was recovered from his bedroom after he surrendered to police.
