WEST GOSHEN, Pa. (AP) – Authorities have released a sketch of the gunman believed to have fatally shot a recent high school graduate during a road rage incident in southeastern Pennsylvania.

West Goshen Police Chief Joseph Gleason says the shooter is believed to be a 20- to 40-year-old white male with blond hair and a medium build. He said there is a $5,000 reward for information leading to the suspect’s capture.

Eighteen-year-old Bianca Roberson was shot in West Goshen on Wednesday in what Gleason described as a high speed “cat and mouse game” between her and the driver of a faded red pickup truck. He says the two were trying to merge into a single highway lane and neither was ceding. Roberson’s car veered off the road and was later found in a ditch.

Roberson had just graduated from Bayard Rustin High School. She was headed to Jacksonville University in Florida in the fall.
