Police have made an arrest in the murder of a 32-year-old Cuyahoga Falls man. 

Edward Piechowiak Jr., 65, of Maple Heights, was arrested Thursday on aggravated murder and tampering with evidence charges, with other charges possibly pending. 

According to police, they've also recovered the weapon used in the shooting. 

Police were called to the Water's Edge Apartments near Wyoga Lake that Kevin Tiearney shared with his fiance on reports of gunshots fired on August 2nd. Tiearney was found unresponsive, transported to a local hospital, and was pronounced dead later. Piechowiak Jr. is listed as the maternal grandfather of Tiearney's child.
