A man who is wanted for killing a woman outside of her work at a Boston pharmacy last month has been arrested, police said.
Akil Jackson, 41, was taken into custody in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts, on Aug. 11, police announced.
Boston police had called him “armed and dangerous,” the Boston Herald reported.
Jackson had been wanted in connection to the murder of Alicia Heywood, 42, according to the Boston Herald.
On July 29, Jackson is accused of shooting and killing Heywood outside of Sullivan’s Pharmacy in Roslindale, where she was an employee, the Boston Herald reported.
On Aug.11, West Bridgewater Police received a distress call from a monitoring service for victims of violent crimes.
Initially, the information coming through was incomplete. However, the on-duty dispatcher pieced together that the victim was in distress and sent officers, according to West Bridgewater police.
While police were headed to the incident location, they learned that the suspect was wanted on an outstanding warrant in Boston for murder and other charges. Officers identified the suspect as Jackson and took him into custody without further incident.
Police also found Jackson with a loaded 9mm semiautomatic handgun that was reported stolen from Georgia, cops say.
Jackson is wanted in Boston on charges of murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition without an FID card.
Jackson will also face charges for the incident in West Bridgewater, including unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and violation of a restraining order.
