GAUTIER, Miss. (WKRG) — The Gautier Police Department said they are looking for a 27-year-old man who is wanted for murder. They believe he has fled to Mobile.

“I have received information from tips and stuff that he is possibly in the Mobile or Prichard area,” said Gautier Police Chief David Bever.
Police say Rogers and the victim, Shannon got into an argument at the gas station. Rogers then reportedly pulled out a gun and shot Shannon once. He died on scene.
Neighboring cameras caught video of Rogers fleeing.
