Woman added this week to FBI's 'most wanted' list arrested in North Carolina

24-year-old Shanika Minor is wanted for the murder of a pregnant woman and her unborn child

 

A Milwaukee woman added to the FBI’s “10 Most Wanted Fugitives” this week was arrested early Friday in North Carolina.

Shanika Minor, 24, was wanted for the March 6 murder of Tamecca Perry and her unborn child, according to Fox 6 Milwaukee. 

The station reported that Minor was arrested without incident at a motel in Fayetteville, N.C. after an anonymous caller tipped off local sheriff's deputies. 

The FBI had posted a $100,000 reward in the case.

Authorities say Minor shot Perry, who was nine months pregnant, following a confrontation over loud music at the duplex where Minor's mother also lived. Minor fled after the shooting.

A criminal complaint says Minor’s mother told police her daughter and Perry had “an argument over the playing of loud music” a week prior to the shooting, Fox 6 reported. Minor told investigators her daughter “thought that the victim was disrespecting her.”
