Two charged in fatal shooting at Gautier gas station

Two people have been arrested in connection with an April fatal shooting in Gautier.

Maurice Shannon was killed April 3 after a shooting at the Pure gas station on Ladnier Road.

According to police, Thomas Guy Rogers, the suspected shooter, was arrested Friday at a residence in Mobile.

On May 5, detectives arrested Iesha Finley, 21, of Gautier at a residence in Brookhaven on a charge of accessory after the fact.

Detectives believe Rogers, 27, and Finley were in a dating relationship.

Rogers will be held at the Mobile Metro Jail until he is extradited back to Mississippi, police said.

A press release from Gautier police does not specify the exact charges against Rogers.

Chief David Bever thanks the Gautier police officers and detectives involved with this case, and others who assisted, including the Federal Bureau of Investigations in Pascagoula, the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics, the Brookhaven Police Department and the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Unit.
