WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Metropolitan Police arrested Gary Niles Montgomery for the murder of JaParker Jones, a transgender woman from D.C., on Friday.

Montgomery, 55, resides in Northeast.

Police say Montgomery stabbed Jones in the head while she waited at a bus stop in the 4900 block of East Capitol Street around 8:15 p.m. on Feb. 2.

Jones, 23, was taken to the hospital where she succumbed to her injuries the following day.

A motive for the stabbing is still unclear and police are unsure whether the murder was a hate crime.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the killing.

Police released surveillance video of a “person of interest” last week and asked the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect.
