A young father of twin girls was gunned down right in front of his house in Bucks County, and the search for his killer continues.

Kathleen Colter says her son, Robert, was poised to begin a nursing program at Bucks County Community College.

"He was my pride and joy," she said. "Sweet guy, he had just got a scholarship to the RN program to be a nurse."

That all changed on Tuesday, February 16th.

Kathleen says the family had just returned home from a family dinner.

At about 8 p.m., Robert was outside in front of their home along Bath Street in Bristol, Pa.

"We heard gunshots," Kathleen said.

Robert was hit in the head and killed.

"I know it wasn't intended for him," Kathleen said. "I know in my heart."

The police agree.

"We don't believe that he was necessarily the target," said Det. William Davis. "There are several eyewitnesses to the actual shooting, and there's video surveillance that we were able to collect from the shooting itself."

Witnesses reported seeing a small, red, compact vehicle leaving the area, but police say they need more.

"Whether they think it's important or not we like to sift through everything just to firm up what we believe already happened," said Davis.

"Somebody saw something, somebody knows something," said Kathleen.

The Citizens Crime Commission is administering a $2,500 reward for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.

All you need to do is call 215-546-TIPS. All calls will remain anonymous.
