Four teens have been indicted for their roles in an Anchorage shooting death last month.

The teens are accused of shooting 40-year-old Paula Zorawski on Sept. 22 when she answered the door of her East Anchorage home.

Zorawski died Sept. 28 at Providence Alaska Medical Center.

The teens visited the home prior to the shooting to buy marijuana.

Yurel Nichols, 18, was indicted for 1st and 2nd degree murder and robbery in the 1st degree.

Savon Berry, Tommy Higgs III – both 18-years-old – and Alonzo Steward, 19, are indicted on 2nd degree murder, 1st degree robbery, and tampering with evidence charges.

Each of the teens faces up to 99 years in prison for the murder charges.

All four defendants are scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Anchorage Superior Court.

A fifth teen pled guilty last month to 1st degree robbery charged in connection to the incident.
