PETERSBURG,  Va. (WTVR) – The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Taskforce arrested a Prince George County man in connection with a Petersburg shooting. Quinton R. Taylor, 27, was also wanted by Hopewell Police on outstanding charges of malicious wounding, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm after being a convicted felon, according to a press release from Hopewell Police Chief John Keohane.

Keohane said the taskforce arrested Taylor, without incident, at 3:00 a.m. on April 12, along the 400 block of Roundtop Avenue in Petersburg.

Taylor is a suspect in an April 6, 2012, non-fatal shooting on S. 8th Ave.

Taylor is being held without bond at Riverside Regional Jail  pending arraignment.
