Milwaukee woman on FBI ‘Most Wanted’ list captured

Shanika S. Minor is accused of shooting her mother's nine-months-pregnant neighbor a week after Minor confronted the woman with a complaint about loud music. She has no previous criminal record. Minor first challenged the woman to a fight the night of March 5 with a semi-automatic gun in hand. She fired several shots into the air and left the scene at her mother's request. Hours later, Minor entered the woman's home and fired a round at the woman's chest.

MILWAUKEE —  The 24-year-old Milwaukee woman, who was added to the FBI’s “10 Most Wanted Fugitives” list this week, was arrested in Fayetterville, N.C., the FBI confirmed Friday.

On Tuesday, the FBI in Milwaukee added Shanika S. Minor to the list. Minor — who uses the alias Ida Jackson — is charged in the fatal shooting of her mother’s pregnant neighbor and unborn child about one week after Minor confronted Tamecca Perry, with a complaint about loud music. Minor has no previous criminal record.

Minor is the seventh Wisconsin fugitive to appear on the FBI list since its inception in 1950, and the first from Milwaukee.

Minor first challenged the woman to a fight the night of March 5 with a semi-automatic gun in hand. She fired several shots into the air and left the scene at her mother’s request.

Hours later, about 3 a.m. March 6, Minor entered the neighbor’s home armed with a gun. Her mother again attempted to intervene, stepping between Minor and the pregnant neighbor, but was unable to de-escalate the situation before Minor reached over her mother’s shoulder and fired a round at the woman’s chest.

Prior to her arrest Friday, Minor had not been seen since the shooting.

More than 90% of the 509 fugitives ever to appear on the “Ten Most Wanted” list have been apprehended or located. Though the list was populated with bank robbers and car thieves in the 1950s, it has since evolved to incorporate perpetrators of violent crime, cybercrime, international money laundering and drug trafficking.
