Anchorage Couple Indicted for Attempted Murder at Muldoon Fred Meyer
March 7, 2018
(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) Today, an Anchorage grand jury indicted 20 year old Eric Lee and 18 year old Linda McGrew of Attempted Murder in the First Degree, Attempted Assault in the First Degree, and four counts of Assault in the Third Degree.
On January 11, 2018, a male and female, subsequently identified as Eric Lee and Linda McGrew, were in a self-checkout line at a Fred Meyer store on Muldoon. McGrew was holding a toddler in her arms. A group of three men entered the Alaska USA Federal Credit Union bank inside of Fred Meyer and got into line. A civilian was standing in front of these men in line. The entire event was captured on video. McGrew is observed handing Lee her purse and Lee removes a gun from the purse. Lee then walks over to the bank entrance and fires a shot at one of the men before running away. As Lee walked to the bank, McGrew grabbed the toddler and quickly exited the store. The shot missed and went into the bank wall.
If convicted at trial, Lee and McGrew face sentences of up to 99 years imprisonment for Attempted Murder in the First Degree. The charges in the indictment are only allegations and are not evidence of guilt. Defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the prosecution must prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Both defendants are currently in the custody of the Department of Corrections.
