Shanika S. Minor
Added June 28th, 2016
Shanika S. Minor, the 10th woman to be one of the FBI's "10 Most Wanted," made the list this June after allegedly killing a pregnant woman in Milwaukee who "disrespected" her family. According to the agency, last February, Minor's mother mentioned to her daughter that her neighbor had been playing loud music late at night. But when 25-year-old Minor confronted the neighbor on the street with a semi-automatic weapon, Minor's mother ran out to diffuse the situation. Minor relented, but was left feeling that her family was "disrespected." A week later, around 3 a.m., Minor entered the neighbor's duplex through the common hallway and encountered the woman at her rear her door. Minor's mother ran down again – placing herself between the two women – but Minor was able to reach over her mother and shoot her in the chest, which killed her almost instantly. Her unborn child, due within a week, died before the ambulance got there. That was early March, and Minor was on the run until the early hours of July 1 – just three days after she was added to the list – when she was apprehended in a North Carolina motel.
