FORREST CITY, AR (KAIT) – The man wanted for a shooting incident in Forrest City and for outstanding charges is dead.

Forrest City police say Antonio Mario Rogers, 21, has died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Rogers was wanted for aggravated assault following a shooting incident on the 100 block of Tennessee Street on Oct 12 and for outstanding charges with the St. Francis County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say they started receiving information for Roger's whereabouts on Monday evening after asking the public for help in finding him. Officers described him as a 5 foot 8 inch tall man weighing 150 lbs who may be disguised as a woman.

Officers say he was soon found on Mississippi Street around 7:26 p.m. on Oct. 18, and saw him run into a house on 215 East Mississippi Street. The Forrest City Police Department and the St. Francis County Sheriff's Department surrounded the home and tried to get Rogers to come to the door with no avail. Once officers entered, they say they found Rogers with a bullet wound.

Roger was rushed to the Forrest City Medical Center where he later died. The Arkansas State Police are conducting further investigations.
