"He's considered armed and dangerous -- so members of the public should not approach him," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Justin Tolomeo.

Strickland is wanted for fatally shooting two men on July 17th. Police say a fight between a group of seven or eight men ended when Strickland started shooting near 26th and Hopkins on Milwaukee's north side. Maurice Brown Jr. and Michael Reed were shot and died from their injuries.  The incident happened after several men were arguing outside a house. Witnesses say Strickland went inside the residents, came back out with a gun and fired into the group.

"After shooting, Strickland approached Brown who was lying on the ground and shot him multiple times. He then turned to Reed and shot him in the head," Tolomeo said.

Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn called it a cold-blooded shooting of two innocent men.

"Neither individual posed the slightest threat to Mr. Strickland. But they paid with their lives for occupying the same space," Flynn said.

Strickland fled in a black SUV -- leaving something precious behind.

"When he fled, Strickland left his 18-month-old daughter in a bedroom at the residence," Flynn said.

Strickland is the second fugitive added to the FBI's list from Milwaukee in the past six months. The first was Shanika Minor -- accused of fatally shooting a pregnant woman. She was caught soon after making the list.

Authorities are hoping for the same results with Strickland.

Strickland has been charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide.  He may be hiding in Milwaukee or possibly Chicago. He is described by officials as being 6'2" tall and weighing roughly 240 pounds.

Anyone with information on Strickland's whereabouts is urged to call the Milwaukee Police Department at 414-935-7360.
