Shanika S. Minor was finally captured by the FBI on Friday morning in Layetteville, North Carolina. The 24-year-old, who was recently added to the FBI’s Most Wanted list, was wanted for the March 2016 murder of her pregnant neighbor and unborn child that took place in a Milwaukee, Wisconsin apartment complex.
According to The Clarion Ledger, a tweet confirmed Minor’s capture, which came months after the Mississippi-native was on the run.
As HELLO BEAUTIFUL previously reported, Minor allegedly killed Tamecca Perry, her nine-month-pregnant neighbor. Police believe Minor killed her neighbor over loud music being played after hours. Minor approached the pregnant woman with a gun, but that confrontation was broken up. The following day, Minor confronted her neighbor again and allegedly shot and killed her and her unborn child.
“This was a senseless crime,” Special Agent Chad Piontek recently told NBC. “We believe Minor is capable of more violence. We need to capture her so no one else is harmed.”
Minor fled the scene and was believed to be receiving help from family or friends in another state. The FBI offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to her capture. It’s unknown if anyone will be collecting this reward for Minor’s recent capture.
