Taylor was taken into custody at the Gwinnett County Jail. Police say he is the only suspect in the case.

He missed his first court appearance on Monday because he is under suicide watch, according to authorities. 

Fejzic's shooting death shocked the tight-knit community of Bosnian residents in Lawrenceville, who remembered him as a quiet family man who had just welcomed his second child into the world.
