Minor has been at-large since March 2016, when investigators say she fatally shot her mother's 23-year-old neighbor in Milwaukee. The neighbor, identified by Milwaukee police as Tamecca Perry, died on March 6, just five days before she was expected to give birth to her third child.
Perry collapsed in the duplex she split with Minor's mother and died in front of her two children, according to the FBI. Her unborn child also died in the shooting.
Minor and Perry were high school classmates. On the day before the fatal shooting, the pair argued over Perry playing loud music in her home, according to authorities.
"Apparently Minor believed that the victim had somehow disrespected her or her mother," said FBI Special Agent Chad Piontek, who is investigating the case. "This was a senseless crime and we believe Minor is capable of more violence. We need to capture her so that no one else is harmed."
Minor on March 5 fired a single shot into the air during an argument with Perry outside the pregnant woman's duplex, witnesses told police. The argument stemmed over a complaint from Minor's mother about Perry playing loud music late at night.
Minor's mother attempted to break up the fight and Minor left the area after firing her gun.
"Most people who witnesses the incident thought that was the end of it," Piontek said.
Minor, however, returned to the neighborhood just before 3 a.m. on March 6. She confronted Perry again and Minor's mother once again attempted to intervene, this time by putting herself between the two women.
