TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Police say a Tampa city bus driver has been fatally stabbed by a passenger who is in custody.

Police spokesman Steve Hegarty tells news outlets that the suspect stabbed the male driver Saturday afternoon and then ran away. The driver died from his injuries.

Officers say they approached someone fitting the suspect’s description, but the man fled. He was eventually apprehended on the side of a highway and charged with resisting arrest.

Authorities did not immediately release the names of the suspect or the victim.

Investigators said there is no clear motive for the stabbing.
