PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A mother grieving the sudden loss of her teenage son enlists the public’s help in finding his killer.
“I miss his smile, his laugh, just his laugh. His smile just lights up the room. He was a charmer,” said Darshonta Roberson.
She says her son Nasir Roberson was a quiet 18-year-old.
“He was really calm, he didn’t really tell us too much.”
On Sunday, June 27, 2021, Nasir was with his girlfriend at a home on the 2800 block of Memphis Street in the Port Richmond neighborhood of Philadelphia. At 1:17 a.m., Nasir went outside.
“She told me he was waiting for someone outside. Someone told him to come outside and he waited for them,” Roberson said.
Then the police say he was shot multiple times. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The city of Philadelphia is offering up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. All you have to do is call the Citizens Crime Commission at 215-546-TIPS. All calls remain anonymous.
Darshonta says it pains her that her 2-year-old granddaughter only knows her father from pictures.
“She looks at the pictures and says this is my daddy. So we have a lot of memories and pictures of them,” Roberson said.
