*No one knows why a 24-year-old woman with no prior criminal record chose to take an action that would forever alter her future, but according to the FBI Milwaukee Bureau, they have captured Shanika S. Minor, who ended up on their ‘Most Wanted’ List after she opened fire that fatally wounded a pregnant woman who lived next door to her mother.
Minor used the alias “Ida Jackson” and is said to have shot Tamecca Perry and her unborn child a week after an altercation that had Minor complaining to the woman about loud music.
According to USA Today, Minor first challenged the woman to a fight on 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. on 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 been added to the FBI’s “10 Most Wanted Fugitives” list and had not been seen since the shooting.
This is so very shocking and disheartening. That tempers could escalate like this and end two lives and tragically alter a third.
