Suspect on FBI’s Most Wanted List Performs His Take on ‘Kiki Challenge’

A double murder suspect who was captured after being placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list turned toward a television news camera and showed off his version of the viral “Kiki challenge.” 

Antwan Mims, of Michigan, was captured in Georgia last month after prosecutors accused him of fatally shooting two men, execution-style, in front of about 100 people at a house party in Benton Harbor on March 25. 

As federal agents escorted Mims off an airplane and into the hands of local police at Southwest Michigan Regional Airport on Tuesday, he briefly stopped, turned toward a camera operated by NBC affiliate WDNU 16 and performed his version of the dance craze, flashing a love heart with his cuffed hands. 

The dance, popularized by rapper Drake, is sweeping across social media as thousands of people share videos of their versions of the infectious “Kiki Challenge.”

But the charges facing Mims are no laughing matter.

If convicted of first-degree premeditated murder, he likely will be sentenced to life in prison.  

Prosecutors allege Mims forced Cortez Lamont Miller and Michael Canthrell Johnson to lay down and then shot one in the face and the other in the head.

“When a wanted felon like Mims is placed on the FBI 10 Most Wanted List, his world becomes smaller as that bright spotlight is shined upon him,” Special Agent Timothy R. Slater said in a statement. “Couple that with determined federal, state, and local investigators, his life on the run ends with him in handcuffs.”

FBI agents tracked him down at a home in Atlanta and arrested him.
