On November 14, 2019 at 6:40 pm, the Gulf Coast Violent Offender Task Force, which includes Deputies from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy U.S. Marshals and Houston Police Department, were tracking a person wanted as a suspect out of Mississippi for multiple felony offenses.
Montgomery County Sheriffs Officials say Roderick Wayne Bowers is a 52 year old black male, 6-feet-tall and weighs 195 pounds, and is wanted in connection with an Aggravated Kidnapping, Aggravated Domestic Violence and Homicide in Gulfport Mississippi. As members of the Task Force attempted to stop Bowers, he fled on foot and pointed a handgun at Task Force Members as he ran into the Harmony Park Apartment Complex where he then eluded police. Multiple units from numerous local agencies converged on the location and set up a perimeter, and canine units are on scene as the search continues. Bowers was last seen wearing blue jeans, a dark hoodie with a black jacket. Bowers is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him call the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office using 911 and do not attempt to approach him.
