Police seek teen charged with shooting woman

Posted: Tuesday, February 26, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Wasilla police are looking for a teen-ager charged with attempted murder last month in the shooting of a 75-year-old woman.

Police say 18-year-old Andrew Lee Coffman is a threat. He was released on bail Feb. 15.

He was charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting Mary Rogers in the face after breaking into her Wasilla-area home. Police said Coffman went to the home to talk to Elizabeth Ingram, the girlfriend of Rogers' grandson.

Coffman shot Rogers after she confronted him with a gun, police said. Rogers suffered a broken jaw.

Police put out the lookout on Coffman after he contacted Ingram Monday at the Carrs store in Wasilla. That's in violation of his release conditions.
