Fugitive Shanika Minor, arrested after three months on the run after she appeared on FBI’s Most Wanted
A Wisconsin woman wanted for the murder of a pregnant woman and her unborn child has been arrested in Fayetteville, North Carolina, according to the FBI. Shanika Minor, 24, was added this week to the FBI’s notorious “Top Ten Most Wanted” fugitives list. The FBI Milwaukee announced the arrest Friday.
Minor is suspected of murdering Tamecca Perry, 23, her mother’s neighbor over a loud music complaint. The murder occurred after a March 5 confrontation she had with the Perry, where she brandished a firearm and threatened Perry who was nine months pregnant.
Minor’s mother told her that Perry had been playing loud music at an unreasonable hour. On March 5, investigators say Minor confronted Perry near her home, but Minor’s mother de-escalated the situation. Minor allegedly brandished a firearm and fired a round into the air, she felt Perry was “disrespecting her family.”
Minor returned to the duplex just before 3am the next day and confronted Perry again at the back door of her home.
Once again Minor’s mother tried to ‘calm things down’, telling her daughter to leave and trying to prevent her daughter from getting inside the building. She tried to push Minor outside, telling her daughter that Perry was nine months pregnant.
