A dispute fueled as a result of loud music turned into the death of Tamecca Perry and her unborn child, as well as the hunt for a killer on the run.

Perry was shot outside of her house in Milwaukee on March 5. After wounding the expectant mother, she died in front of her two children. The unborn child died as well.

The culprit, Shanika S. Minor, 24, was charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide. However, she has been nowhere to be found since the day of Perry’s death.

According to The Washington Post, the FBI added Minor to its top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list. Authorities are granting up to $100,000 for information regarding the Milwaukee woman’s arrest.

FBI Milwaukee Division special agent Robert Shields said, “The brutal murder of a mother and her unborn child is reprehensible…The FBI will provide all of our available resources to assist the Milwaukee Police Department in locating and apprehending this violent fugitive.”

Perry and Minor’s mother lived in the same housing unit. She complained to her daughter about Perry playing loud music at inconvenient hours.

Apparently a week later, on March 5, Minor accosted Perry on the sidewalk outside of her house, waved a handgun, and challenged Perry to a fight.

Minor’s mother got involved and encouraged her daughter not to injure the pregnant woman. Minor shot a round into the air, jumped into a car, and sped off.

However she did not stop there.

On March 6, at 3 a.m., Minor showed up behind Perry’s home where she confronted the pregnant woman for a second time.

In a news release, the FBI claimed, “Minor’s mother again ran to the scene, this time positioning herself between her daughter and the neighbor, trying to keep the peace. Witnesses said Minor reached over her mother’s shoulder and fired her gun, striking the woman in the chest.”

Minor is not easy to track. Her only known profession has been newspaper deliverer. According to the FBI special agent, “There is no record she had any reliable employment.”

The FBI regards Minor as “armed and extremely dangerous.”

She may have been in touch with people in Missouri, Mississippi, Texas, Tennessee, Ohio, and Georgia. However, her whereabouts are still unknown.
