LT Ken Bergstrom says a body was found in the woods off Crawfordville Road in southern Leon County early Sunday morning.
The victim has been identified as 32-year-old Corvin M. Harrison.
Witnesses say Harrison was shot late Saturday night inside his vehicle by 35-year-old Robert Matthews in the 2000 block of Holmes Street.
Bergstrom says the suspect then fled the scene in the victim's car and then dumped the body in the woods. He was later arrested in an apartment off Lake Bradford Road.
Matthews faces charges of first degree murder, grand theft auto, armed robbery and possession of a fire arm.
