The second suspect in the auto repair shop slaying in July was arrested in Philadelphia, Colorado Springs police said.

Eric William Grant, 38, was arrested by federal authorities, Philadelphia police said, on suspicion of first-degree murder of George Maldonado Sr.

Maldonado was gunned down in Colorado Springs on July 13 in his auto repair shop, Full Throttle Auto Service at 305 N. Chelton Road.

According to the El Paso County jail records, Grant is not in Colorado yet.

The FBI had offered $5,000 for information on Grant, who had escaped capture since the killing and was considered armed and dangerous.
Police told the Maldonado family Monday that Grant had been arrested but did not say where, said the victim’s brother, Michael Maldonado.
Derrick Davis first was charged in the murder. He was arrested July 17 in Minnesota and returned to Colorado on Aug. 4. He had his first court hearing in Colorado Springs on Aug. 14.
Grant’s arrest was the result of efforts by Colorado Springs and Philadelphia police, Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers, Colorado Springs FBI, Philadelphia Police Department, Philadelphia FBI and the United States Marshal’s Service.
