JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
The man wanted for firing shots at a state trooper at a Jackson mall last Friday, is now in custody.
Jackson police confirm they have arrested 26 year-old Wilbert Coleman.
He was picked up on Bailey Avenue around 10 a.m. Monday.
Police say he was wearing a purple skirt at the time.
Coleman is being charged with armed robbery of an individual and aggravated assault.
Jackson Police Spokesperson Colendula Green says, "It appears that he is a known cross dresser so he was in ladies attire when he was picked up."
Last Friday, a highway patrolman exchanged gunfire with Coleman in a Metrocenter parking lot, after the officer saw him attempt to rob an elderly woman.
Coleman fled in a green Buick, but jumped out on Highway 80 after getting a flat tire. He fled north and officers gave chase, but they were unable to find him.
Police say they found stolen clothes in their vehicle which is also under investigation.
No one was shot in the incident. 21 year-old Erica Johnson was a passenger in Coleman's vehicle. She was arrested and charged with armed robbery.
