Homicide suspect Jacob Wayne Rogers is in police custody.
Our friends at Racine Uncovered reported that he was arrested by Racine police around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Kearney and 21st Street.
Rogers is charged with shooting Andrew Jones to death, which was caught on video, according to a complaint filed by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday.
Lt. Al Days, of the Racine Police Department, confirmed that Rogers was taken into custody without incident. Rogers was with his girlfriend Katelyn McGraw, who was unharmed. She was taken to the Racine Police Department for questioning.
“The Police Department had been in communication with Mr. Rogers this afternoon and evening, and negotiated an avenue for Mr. Roger’s safe surrender,” according to a press release by the Racine Police Department.
Racine Police investigators continue to seek any additional information that anyone may have about this crime. Any witnesses, or citizens with information, are urged to contact Crimestoppers at 262-636-9330, or by texting RACS plus the message to CRIMES (274637) and referring to Tipsoft I.D. #TIP417 with your text message.
