FBI Seeks Woman Who Killed Expectant Mother And Unborn Child

By Benjamin H. Smith

 The FBI is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension of a Milwaukee woman who senselessly murdered a pregnant women and the unborn child she carried in her womb. Shanika S. Minor, 24, has been charged in absentia with First Degree Intentional Homicide and First Degree Intentional Homicide of an Unborn Child for the March 6th shooting and is now a member of the FBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted. And according to witnesses, the whole incident was the result of an argument about loud music.

Tamecca Perry, the 23-year-old victim, lived in an apartment underneath Shanika Minor’s mother, who had complained to her daughter about her neighbor’s playing loud music late into the night. When Shanika confronted Perry on her mother’s behalf, the argument escalated into a full blown fist fight between Minor and the pregnant women, who was just days away from giving birth. Mother tried to separate the two women, but Shanika pulled out a gun and shot Tamecca over her mother’s shoulder. The pregnant women collapsed and subsequently died from her injuries, as did her gestating baby. Minor fled the scene in her car and authorities believe family in other states may be hiding her. She is considered armed and dangerous and the FBI is hoping the public will help assist in her capture.
