TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Lucas County Sheriff's booking department and Toledo Municipal Court documents confirm Terry Hayes is in custody and has been charged with murder and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in a shooting that left one person dead at a Toledo car lot.

Hayes was arrested around 1:45 Wednesday morning.  He is being held on $2 million bond and his next court date is scheduled for July 16.

Police say Hayes shot Ricky Arnaz Layson at R and D Auto Sales on Lewis Avenue around 11:25 a.m. Tuesday. Moments before Hayes fired the two fatal shots, police say he and Layson exchanged words. 

Layson, co-owner of R and D Auto Sales, was transported to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead, according to police.

The police report states Layson told police before being taken to the hospital that he did not know the shooter.

Hayes has an extensive criminal record and has had several past run-ins with the law.

Layson's family members say he was a good person with a contagious laugh. He leaves behind a wife and two children. They say he also raised his three younger siblings and helped put his brother through college. 

Many people stopped by the memorial set up at R and D Auto Sales on Wednesday to say a few words in memory of Layson.
