Federal authorities say tips from the community, social media and a gun trace led to the arrest of the man accused of providing the weapon used to kill two Westerville police officers. 

The information led to the arrest of 30-year-old Gerald Lawson of northeast Ohio on charges of selling a gun last summer to Quentin Smith. Lawson faces a bond hearing on Wednesday.
