A man wanted for a double homicide in Benton Harbor has been added to the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives" list.

Antwan Tamon Mims should be considered armed and extremely dangerous, the FBI says.

Mims is wanted for the murders of Cortez Lamont Miller and Michael Canthrell Johnson while they were attending a house party in Benton Harbor on March 25.

Investigators believe Mims, a known member of the Gangster Disciples Street Gang, walked up to the two men as they stood together in the front yard and gunned them down in front of about 100 people.

Authorities say as both victims were lying on the ground injured, Mims allegedly shot Miller in the back of the head and Johnson in the face, and then walked away.

On March 27, Mims was charged with two counts of first-degree premeditated murder, possession of a firearm by a felon and two counts of weapons felony firearms.

A federal arrest warrant was obtained on May 2 for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. Mims has family and other personal ties to Michigan, Indiana, Georgia, Tennessee, Illinois and Ohio.

“The callused indifference with which Mims carried out his murders has rightly placed this violent
and dangerous fugitive on the FBI’s ‘Ten Most Wanted Fugitives’ list,” stated Timothy R. Slater,
Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Detroit Field Office.

Mims is known to have used a variety of aliases, to include: Ricky Moore, Holden Harris, Holden
Harris, Jr., “Tank,” Antwan T. Tamon, Antwon Tamon Mims, Antwan Tamon, Jr., Antwane
Tamon Mims, and Antwane Tamone.

He is described by authorities as 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 210 to 265 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He has tattoos on his left hand, left forearm, right hand, right forearm and upper right arm.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Antwan Mims.
