Bianca Nikol Roberson, 18, who graduated from West Chester Rustin High School just weeks ago, was shot in the head Thursday at about 5:30 p.m. while attempting to merge her Chevrolet Malibu where the road way narrows from two lanes to one near the ramp onto US 202. Police said Roberson was apparently jockeying with the driver of a red pickup truck for position when the man driving the truck apparently pulled out a gun and shot her in the head. Roberson’s car then rolled off the roadway, while the truck — according to surveillance video — fled up the shoulder and onto Us-202 before exiting at Paoli Pike.

That truck and its driver are now the subject of a manhunt. The man is described as a medium-build white male, 30 to 40 years old with blond or light brown hair. The truck is described as a small possibly a Chevrolet truck with faed red paint.
