Romana Cooper Wiki – Romana Cooper Bio
Romana Cooper was a US air force veteran. She is shot and killed in Winthrop’s shooting. Authorities in Massachusetts are investigating whether a man who killed two people in the Boston suburb of Winthrop on Saturday targeted them because they were Black after officials found “troubling white supremacist rhetoric” in the gunman’s handwriting, a prosecutor said.
She was 60-year-old.
Authorities say Allen shot and killed David Green, a retired Massachusetts State Police trooper, and Romana Cooper, an Air Force veteran, after emerging from a stolen truck that he crashed into a building on Saturday afternoon. Officials have described them as innocent bystanders. Allen was fatally shot by police moments later.
The shooter “walked by several other people that were not Black and they are alive. They were not harmed,” Rollins told reporters Sunday. “They are alive and these two visible people of color are not. We will continue to look and see,” Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins said.

Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins, who identified the shooter as 28-year-old Nathan Allen, said investigators uncovered writings that express “anti-Semitic and racist statements against Black individuals.”
Rollins did not provide more details about the suspect’s writings or where they were found. She cautioned that the investigation is in its early stages, but said that “these families deserve answers and we will find out what happened here.”
Green retired from state police in 2016 and worked in law enforcement for nearly 40 years, said Massachusetts State Police Col. Christopher Mason. Green was shot outside his home, Mason said.
