PHILADELPHIA -

Colorado Springs Police confirmed Tuesday that the second suspect in the Full Throttle Auto Service murder and robbery has been arrested in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia police arrested 38-year-old Eric William Grant without incident on suspicion of first-degree murder for the July murder of George Maldonado and seriously injuring another employee at Full Throttle Auto Service off of Chelton Road.

Minnesota State Troopers arrested the other suspect, 59-year-old Derrick Davis on July 17 at a hotel in Bloomington, Minn.

Grant and Davis are accused of posing as utility workers and robbing the Full Throttle Auto Service location on Chelton Road on July 13. Grant is accused of killing 50-year-old George Maldonado and critically injuring another employee.

Grant was considered "suspect #1" in the murder.

Grant was arrested after assistance from CSPD, the FBI and the U.S. Marshal's office along with other agencies.

A booking photo of Grant was not immediately made available.
