On Tuesday, one of Taylor's neighbors told The Daily Times she was at home at the time of the shooting.

Savanah Gonzalez said she heard noise outside her home followed by about seven or eight gunshots. When the shots were fired, Gonzalez said, she was a little nervous for the safety of her seven-year-old  daughter and fiance.

After the shooting, Gonzalez stepped outside her home and saw Taylor's girlfriend and another lady attending to him on the ground outside the home.

She said she was one of three people who called police about the shooting.

Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to call San Juan County Crime Stoppers at 505-334-8477.
