Coogler, who is now 19, was already arrested about midway through 2023 on robbery charges unrelated to the shooting. DNA, witness accounts, and other evidence have allegedly linked Coogler to the shooting, detectives say.

The sheriff's office said on Monday that Coogler has now been formally charged in the homicide of Shearer.
