Authorities with the Meridian Police Department have arrested a suspect they had been searching for since Saturday who was allegedly involved in the shooting of another man.

According to MPD Lt. Dean Harper, Lamajor A. Taylor, 18, of Meridian, was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault.

The victim was said Tuesday to be recovering at a Meridian hospital from a single gunshot wound.

"The victim's condition continues to improve," Harper said.

The shooting reportedly took place on 34th Avenue and 12th Street Saturday. The victim was transported to a local hospital emergency room where he successfully underwent emergency surgery.

Taylor allegedly fled the scene and for two days eluded police officers and detectives before being apprehended Monday at an undisclosed location in Meridian.

Taylor's bond was placed at $25,000 Monday afternoon in Meridian Municipal Court.
