The FBI says a Milwaukee woman added to the agency’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list earlier this week has been captured in North Carolina.
The agency said 24-year-old Shanika Minor was arrested in Fayetteville early Friday morning at a motel near the city’s airport. Police were tipped off to her whereabouts by someone who called the Cumberland County Emergency Communications Center. Minor was arrested without incident.
Minor is accused of fatally shooting Tamecca Perry and her unborn child in early March on Milwaukee’s north side. Perry was nine months pregnant. Police say the killing took place one week after Minor complained to Perry about loud music disturbing the peace at a neighboring house where Minor’s mother lives
Minor has been charged with first degree intentional homicide, homicide of an unborn child, and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. She was the first Milwaukee resident and first Wisconsin woman to make the FBI’s most wanted list since it began in 1950.
UPDATE: This story was updated to include more information about Minor’s arrest.
