Chicago — FBI agents in Alabama have arrested a man that Chicago police believe shot and killed a Greyhound bus employee outside the company’s West Loop terminal in October.

Rodnee Miller, 26, was taken into custody on Monday and is awaiting extradition to Chicago, CPD Supt. David Brown said. Brown said Miller is a twice-convicted felon.

Miller arrived in Chicago on a Greyhound from Minneapolis and killed Duwon Gaddis, 30, as Gaddis walked from his car to the bus station around 11:16 a.m. on October 24, according to police.

The department’s top detective, Brendan Deenihan, said the shooting was “targeted” but not pre-planned.

Miller, according to Deenihan, recognized Gaddis as a rival gang member and “took the opportunity at that time to shoot him, and then he fled.”

After killing the victim, the gunman changed clothes inside the bus station and escaped.

Police previously released surveillance images of the killer and later identified Miller by name as the person wanted for the murder.
