Rogers Jr.


Bruce E. Rogers Jr., 34, of the 600 block of Seventh Street, was charged with counts of recklessly endangering security in the first degree, possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of narcotics, possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

According to a criminal complaint:

On September 20, officers were dispatched to the 1800 block of LaSalle Street for shootings.

Upon arrival, officers encountered a woman who said she heard gunshots while she was in her home. She looked outside and saw a man running south on LaSalle Street. He got into a gray Nissan and drove off.

Another witness said the Nissan was being chased by someone getting into a red Ford Focus.

Officers found casings on High Street and another just outside the 1700 block of LaSalle Street. The first shell matched where the Nissan and the Ford had been parked.

Surveillance video showed the Nissan coming to a stop, followed by the Ford which was being driven by Rogers. The driver of the Nissan got out of his vehicle and stood next to the Ford. He and Rogers have a conversation before Rogers goes another 40 feet and stops. Rogers then got out of the vehicle and started running towards the man, arms raised in his direction. Rogers can be seen holding a gun as the two ran down Hagerer Street. The man then fell and Rogers was able to close the distance between the two, holding the gun towards the man. The man raises his hands in the air and the two talk before they both return to their vehicles.

The officer determined that Rogers shot the man as he pursued him. Officers also learned that Rogers was heard yelling, “You’ve been harassing me for years.”

A traffic stop was then issued to the Nissan and the man informed officers of the incident. He said he knew a woman who was in the Ford with Rogers but he didn’t know Rogers by name.

On Wednesday, officers executed a search warrant in the 1200 block of English Street. There, a woman told officers that Rogers had taken a gun from her in a recent burglary. She then showed officers a room set up for Rogers, inside which officers found a bag containing 10.1 grams of marijuana. Officers also found a Glock gun holster with the missing weapon and live ammunition matching the cartridge cases recovered.

Officers then proceeded to the 600 block of Seventh Street to execute a search warrant at Rogers’ residence. They found the Glock in the kitchen along with extra ammo in a backpack. On a shelf was a bag containing whole, crushed MDMA (or ecstasy or molly) pills weighing 9.9 grams. On the floor was a 7.2 gram bag of marijuana. Rogers admitted to being involved in the shooting incident and claimed the man had been bullying him for years. He said the man started “talking to him (expletive)” and admitted to using the Glock to shoot him.

On Friday, Rogers was given $30,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court. A preliminary hearing will be held Nov. 3 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, according to online court records.
