After nearly 30 years on the run, a murder suspect wanted by the FBI was apprehended during a traffic stop, according to officials.
According to the FBI Atlanta’s office, Muhammed Bilal El-Amin was arrested this week during a routine traffic stop. He was wanted in connection to a 1994 murder. He was stopped in Oconee County, Georgia.
Federal investigators said El-Amin was involved in the murder of a man in Atlanta in November 1997.
El-Amin allegedly shot the victim in the face at a train station, according to the FBI. The victim died from his wounds.
The victim was identified as 18-year-old Jafferd Tucker, according to 11Alive. A motive was not released in the case.
Local police issued an arrest warrant. Then federal police issued a warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution in 2001.
