BELOIT—Beloit police are asking the public for help in finding a man in connection with a June 27 shooting.

Police on Friday issued a news release, saying they are looking for Floyd L. Poe, 25, described as 5-foot, 6-inches tall and 170 pounds.

Beloit police are seeking Poe on a warrant charging first-degree recklessly endangering safety in connection with a shooting at Summit Park on June 27, when a 25-year-old Janesville man was wounded.

Poe also is wanted by the state Department of Corrections as a parole violator, and Beloit police want to question Poe about “other violent crimes” in Beloit, the news release states.

“Poe should be considered armed and dangerous,” police said.

To report information about Poe's whereabouts, call Rock County's dispatch center at 608-757-2244, Beloit police at 608-364-6801 or Beloit Area CrimeStoppers, 608-362-7463.
