EL PASO, Texas, A man placed on the FBI list of the 10 most-wanted fugitives after authorities said he killed two men in Milwaukee were arrested Sunday in Texas, the FBI said.
Terry, A. D. Strickland, 24, was arrested in El Paso and booked into the jail. He is charged in Milwaukee with two counts of first-degree intentional murder and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
The jail records do not list a lawyer to respond to his name.
Authorities said Strickland was among a group of men arguing in the front of a Milwaukee house, July 17. Witnesses saw him in the house, come up with a gun and fire into the small crowd. Authorities said Strickland fatally shot Maurice Brown Jr., 38, who was on the ground, then turned to Michael Allen Reed, 39, and shot him in the head.
“It was grim,” Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn said Strickland has been added to the FBI’s most-wanted list in the last month. “It was unnecessary. Neither the individual posed the slightest threat to Mr. Strickland, but they have paid with their lives for the occupation of the same space.”
The authorities have said, Strickland fled from the shooting in a black SUV, leaving his 18-month-old daughter in the house, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
