Strong is wanted for a string of charges including first-degree attempted homicide for shooting the mother of his children more than 20 times. 

U.S. Marshals warn he’s armed and dangerous.

When the victim realized Strong was armed, she made a run for it. Investigators say it did not stop him. 

Strong allegedly went after her and shot her multiple times in Milwaukee near 24th and Lapham. He has been on the run since the July shooting. 

"If you can do this to someone who you are allegedly in love with, you can do that to anybody," the U.S. marshal on the case told FOX6. 

The U.S. Marshals warn anyone helping Strong is risking charges for aiding a fugitive.
