BALTIMORE — A man wanted for allegedly murdering an MTA bus driver last year has been arrested in Atlanta, Georgia.

Baltimore Police say Leon Douglass Hill, 53, shot and killed Elaine Jackson, 40, as she was leaving work on October 18.

According to charging documents Hill first approached Jackson and exchanged words with her in the MTA employee parking lot on Washington Boulevard.

At some point during the argument, Jackson screamed leading Hill to shoot her multiple times.

After shooting Jackson, police say Hill repeatedly stomped her in the face before firing off another shot and fleeing the scene.

Investigators collected eight 9mm shell casings.

He's currently awaiting extradition to Maryland.
