A Michigan man has been added to the FBI's list of "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives," officials in Detroit said Wednesday.

Antwan Tamon Mims is a fugitive and wanted by the FBI in connection with a double homicide in Benton Harbor, according to officials. He should be considered armed and extremely dangerous, the FBI said in a statement.

“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,” Timothy Slater, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Detroit Field Office, said in a statement. “Our need for the public’s assistance cannot be overstated, and we urge anyone with information related to Mims or his horrific crimes to come forward."

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

Mims is accused of the March 25 murders of Cortez Lamont Miller and Michael Canthrell Johnson.

Officials said Mims, who is a known member of the Gangster Disciples Street Gang, allegedly walked up to the two men at a party at a house in the 900 block of Lavette Street and gunned them down in front of about 100 people.

As the two men laid on the ground, Mims allegedly shot Miller in the back of the head and shot Johnson in the face.

Mims is wanted on a warrant that charges him with two counts of first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a felon and felony firearm possession.

“Antwan Mims is extremely dangerous and nobody is safe while this individual remains at large,” Daniel McGinnis Jr., director of Benton Harbor's Public Safety Department, said in a statement. “We are asking for the community’s assistance in locating Mims and beginning the first step of the healing process for the victims’ families.”

Anyone with information on Mims' whereabouts should call the FBI at 1 (800) CALL-FBI or submit a tip online.
