A woman who police believed set up a drug deal that led to a shooting last month won't be charged.

Steffani Weirauch, 24, was cited in February with being an accessory to a felony. But on Monday, Lancaster County Attorney Joe Kelly said charges will not be filed at this time against Weirauch. He didn't say why. 

Two people were injured in the Feb. 11 shooting. The accused shooter, Leshawn Corey Wolfe Rogers, 28, hasn't been found and police believe he may have left Lincoln.

Weirauch and Alexander White, 26, were smoking weed at her home at 5441 Limestone Road North around 5 p.m. that day when White decided he wanted to buy 3 pounds, documents say.

Police said Weirauch called Rogers and made arrangements for White to make the purchase for $7,200.

Sometime during the deal, Weirauch told police Rogers started shooting. White was hit several times, sending him to the hospital in critical condition. Reginald McGraw Jr., 25, who was in the front room during the deal, was also shot once. Both have been released from the hospital.

Police found 3 pounds of marijuana in the house along with less than $2,000 in cash, which was mostly $1 bills wrapped in larger bills, documents say.

Rogers’ car was found abandoned in a Wal-Mart parking lot the next day, documents say. Police have been pursuing leads in an attempt to find him and the SWAT team has been called out on two searches, police said.
