A pregnant 21-year-old woman, Alteria Woods was unfortunately killed during a Sunday morning shootout after SWAT officers raided a Florida home.
According to Police, Woods’ boyfriend and father were the targets of the raid that left her dead and an officer injured. Indian River County Sheriff, Deryl Loar said Woods was accidentally caught in the crossfire, after her boyfriend, 23-year-old Andrew Coffee IV, used her as a human shield during the shootout.
“Andrew Coffee IV cowardly was using her as protection,” Loar said.
The raid targeted Coffee IV and his father, Andrew Coffee III in connection with a series of recent shootings, including a February incident in which an officer was killed by a stray bullet.
Both father and son appeared in court on Monday morning.
A judge set bond for the elder Coffee at $93,000 while the younger Coffee is being held on a $307,000 bond.
