Annapolis Shooting Victim Denied Protective Order

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- A woman who was critically injured by her estranged husband recently sought a protective order against him in Anne Arundel District Court, but it was denied.

Early Monday, police say 60-year-old Calvin Cofield shot 43-year-old Tracy Lyn West of Crownsville before killing himself.

West filed a motion seeking a protective order against Cofield on Dec. 31. Cofield was scheduled to appear in court in March for violating the order. He also filed a protective order against West. The temporary protective orders were then dismissed by a judge on Jan. 8.

West filed for divorce against Cofield last week.

Police said the shooting happened at West's workplace. The Washington Post later reported that it happened at the newspaper's Annapolis distribution center. West is a newspaper carrier.
