More than six hours later, Trigg was found not to be in the apartment. He was later arrested on May 25 on Redwood Avenue.
Police previously told NewsCenter 7 that Trigg and Taylor were believed to have been involved in an argument several weeks before the shooting.
Trigg was released from prison in September 2021 after serving a nine-month sentence for improper handling of a firearm and possession of weapons in a motor vehicle, according to the Montgomery County Prosecutors Office.
