Taylor was in a car being driven by Kaijin Scott. The third suspect not in the car at the time was Laya Whitley.

An update Saturday from police said the suspect Taylor had not originally been arrested and had a warrant out for his arrest but was then apprehended Saturday by police.

The complaint says Wilkinsburg police responded to a call of shots fired and someone suffering a gunshot wound. Upon arrival, officers found Davis laying on the sidewalk suffering from a suspected gunshot wound. Paramedics transported her to U.P.M.C. Presbyterian Hospital where she later died.

A witness told police that Davis had just received $3000 cash Thursday morning from her income tax return. Davis had the money deposited into the witness’ bank account and collected the money from the witness during her lunch break at the Dollar General where Davis worked.

Police say that as Davis left work, she was followed by Taylor and Scott in a Toyota Corolla. They pulled the car in front of her at the 1700 block of Laketon Road. Scott exited the vehicle and pretended to be fixing the vehicle while Taylor chased down Davis, a struggle ensued, several gunshots were fired of which one struck Davis. Taylor retrieved a purse from Davis and returned to the car. Taylor once again got out of the car and went back to Davis where it is believed he retrieved a dropped cell phone. He then returned to the car. An envelope inside the purse contained money and the purse was tossed out of the vehicle before they both fled the scene in the vehicle.

Davis is then seen on surveillance footage crawling toward the sidewalk.

Detectives later located the vehicle in Penn Hills at the 600 block of Jefferson Road and followed a K9 track to the vehicle’s owner. The vehicle was owned by the mother of Kaijin Scott. She told police that her son was using the vehicle during the time of day of the murder.
