GAINESVILLE, Ga. - Police have arrested a man in connection with the slaying of a Gainesville car dealership employee.

Police said a tip from a resident led them to the Constitution Apartments off Constitution Road  in southeast Atlanta, where they arrested 21-year-old Mark Taylor.

The resident who called police spotted the truck authorities said was stolen when someone fatally shot 42-year-old Charles Weaver at the Carriage Mitsubishi on Browns Mill Road.

A few hours before Atlanta police announced their arrest with Channel 2's Ryan Young, Gainesville police confirmed on Sunday that they located the red 2011 Nissan Frontier.

A dealership worker who found Weaver dead at the business is among those struggling with the loss of of their colleague.

The manager did not want to talk on camera, but said the dealership is offering a $10,000 reward for leads in the case, which is under investigation.
