Shauntay L. Henderson (born October 18, 1982) is an American woman in prison. She was a wanted fugitive apprehended on March 31, 2007 by the FBI after being on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list for less than 24 hours. A reward of $100,000 for information leading to her arrest was offered.


Henderson grew up in the Charlie Parker Square public housing project in Kansas City, Missouri.[1]

Criminal history[edit]

Police have suspected Henderson was involved in as many as five other murders and a number of other shootings. However, no other charges have been filed.[2]


On September 2, 2006, Henderson shot and killed DeAndre Parker at a gas station in Kansas City, Missouri. Henderson claimed Parker was trying to run her over with his truck. A jury acquitted Henderson of murder charges but found her guilty of the lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.

The Kansas City Police Department claimed that Henderson was a leader of the violent 12 Street gang who associated with gangs from 24th street through 27th, 51st, and 57th Street. Their alliance was titled "512", "5 ace 2", or "5 ace deuce". However, the claims of the police were never substantiated. At trial, Henderson denied any involvement with gangs.

In May 2012, Henderson was sentenced to serve 10 years in prison for the 2006 manslaughter conviction for which she had previously been sentenced to probation. This sentence of 10 years will run consecutively to her seven-year federal sentence for the charge of being a felon in possession of a weapon so she will spend a total of 17 years in prison.[3]

Felon in possession of a firearm[edit]

On October 27, 2011, Henderson pleaded guilty to felonious possession of a firearm.[4] In April 2012, Henderson was sentenced to seven years in federal prison without parole.[5]
