First you have to install the apps Shared Contacts Manager on the Chrome Web Store. Details of the installation are in this video on youtube.
Good to know : The API used to manage shared contacts is quite old, so it is not possible to send a request and search for a specific user. You can only reach a contact by his ID, if you don't know this ID you have to browse all contact in order to find the on eyou want. That is why we use the email as unique key to find a shared contact.

For deleting a shared contact :

1 - Search the contact by entering his email and click on "Get Information"

search shared contact on my google apps domain

2 - Once contact his find

confirmation message after finding shared contact

3 - Click on "Delete Shared Contact" to delete the entry

4- Deletion will be confirmed on the screen

Delete a shared contact is really simple with Shared Contact Manager even if you don't know the ID of the Shared Contact !!!
