Austin Police are looking for a wanted fugitive accused of shooting at federal officers Tuesday morning.

The shooting happened around 11 a.m. at an apartment complex along Manor Road in East Austin.

Chief Brian Manley says the Lonestar Fugitive Taskforce was attempting to serve a federal arrest warrant for 31-year-old Deonte Lee Rogers, who is wanted on a probation violation.

When officers approached Rogers, Manley says he and another man ran away—and officers began chasing them. “As officers made the approach the suspect ran, along with another individual, around the apartment complex then around the corner headed to the east side towards the woods,” says Manley.

As the men and officers ran around a corner, Manley says Rogers shot at the officers and two officers shot back.

No officers were hurt in the shooting, however, it’s unclear if the suspect was injured—he escaped and has yet to be found.

No officers were hurt in the shooting.

Chief Manley says investigators found a gun in the apartment complex parking lot believed to be the one Rogers used. “We don’t know if he was in possession of another firearm or has access to other firearms,” says Manley.

According to the active warrant, Rogers was convicted in 2015 of felon in possession of a firearm. He served about four years in prison before being released in February 2019 under federal supervision for an additional three years.

However, Rogers is accused of failing drug tests at least 12 times since July 2019 and he was arrested that September for criminal trespassing.

The warrant the task force was serving Tuesday for his arrest is dated March 13, 2020.
