Yes, they can do this. I had a particularly aggressive male molly a few years back who ate one of my ghost shrimp -- I ended up moving him into another tank to save the other. He tried to eat his own babies at one point, too.

Most livebearers will eat their own young, if given the opportunity. Shrimp are definitely an attractive snack.
