Alexis Jade Deboer, of Lancaster Township, allegedly shot the man July 20 while driving in a car with two others in the 900 block of Clark Street in the township.

Deboer told the front passenger to take the wheel of the 2003 Honda Civic so she could shoot at a man who was working on cars at a garage, police said.
