On May 18, officers responded to the Desoto Bass apartment complex on reports of a man shot. When police arrived on scene, they found 29-year-old Myquan Taylor suffering from a gunshot wound. Taylor was brought to a local hospital where he died later that week.
The suspect, 44-year-old Johnny Trigg Jr., fled the scene, and police believed he was in a nearby apartment. Police, SWAT and a hostage negotiation team spent more than six hours outside the apartment before learning Trigg was not inside.
Trigg was found guilty of all counts on Wednesday, October 19 and is scheduled to be sentenced on Monday, Oct. 31.
