SEEING HIS MUG SHOT featured in Monday’s "Week’s Most Wanted" feature in the Daily News rattled one homicide suspect enough that he surrendered to police.

William "Slug" Rogers, 20, who had been wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of a 28-year-old man after an argument — possibly over a bicycle — in March on Edgley Street near 23rd in North Philadelphia, surrendered at Police Headquarters about 1 p.m., according to James Burke, supervisor of the U.S. Marshals Eastern Pennsylvania Violent Crimes Fugitive Task Force.

Burke said Rogers’ surrender was a result of his mug shot appearing in "Week’s Most Wanted," which every Monday features two fugitives sought by the FBI or U.S. Marshals.

Rogers is accused of firing at least 10 shots at Mack Ausby Jr., wounding him several times in his chest and arm, on a crowded block of Edgley Street in the late-afternoon hours on March 14. Ausby was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after the shooting. n
