“They just left her there,” said Missy Rourke, the victim’s mother. “They just left her and ran her over. I mean, how do you just shoot someone and then run them over?”
Roberts’ sister and mother told KDKA-TV that they found out about the fatal shooting after spotting their car on the news. On Tuesday, they returned to the scene for a candlelight vigil to celebrate Roberts’ life and show their support for their four children.

“It’s really killing me,” Rourke said. “I’m dying inside, but I’m trying to stay strong for her.”
“She was very popular, not only with her family and friends, but with the McKees Rocks community itself,” said Brandee Roberts, Ashley’s sister. “My nephew has been playing soccer since he was 6 years old. He’s 17 now.”
But these friends and family members also want answers. The person responsible for Ashley’s death has not yet been caught.
