Woman on FBI’s ‘Top 10’ List Captured in North Carolina

FBI(FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.) -- A woman on the FBI's Top 10 Fugitives list, wanted for allegedly shooting and killing a 9-month-pregnant woman, was captured early Friday morning at a motel in Fayetteville, North Carolina, according to the FBI in Milwaukee.

Shanika Minor was wanted for allegedly shooting and killing a pregnant woman after a confrontation on March 6, the FBI said. The victim was a neighbor of Minor's mother.

The woman was due to give birth within the week, the FBI said, noting that the woman and her unborn child both died before emergency medical personnel arrived.

After the shooting, Minor fled the scene and had not been seen since, the FBI said.

Minor was apprehended early Friday morning at a motel near the airport in Fayetteville after someone called the FBI Public Access Line giving her possible location, the FBI said.

She was taken into custody without incident and is being held the Cumberland County Detention Center, the FBI said.

A reward of up to $100,000 was offered for any information leading directly to her arrest.

An arrest warrant was first issued for Minor on March 9 charging her with first-degree intentional homicide and first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child. A federal arrest warrant was issued on April 27 charging Minor with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
