UPDATE 3/27/2014: Kevin Taylor appeared in court Thursday morning, along with Jaquan Robertson, but a judge continued their cases until May 1.
Albemarle County police have made an arrest in connection with a deadly home invasion Wednesday.
One of the alleged suspects in a robbery gone wrong is dead and another is behind bars. Nineteen-year-old Kevin David Taylor II was arrested and charged with three felonies: burglary while armed, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and attempted robbery.
Albemarle police officers initially responded to reports of a home invasion and shooting just after noon. Inside the home on Townwood Court, they found 20-year-old Eugene Glover dead of a gunshot wound. Glover is considered a second suspect in the botched robbery.
Neighbors say they are shocked to hear something like this happened there.
"This is a safe neighborhood and I was really just in disbelief about what was going on here because not much goes on here,” said Shamir Herman McDonald, who lives nearby. “Children play in the streets and ride their bikes and things. Otherwise, it's quiet. I go to work and home not much goes on here."
Taylor left the home before police arrived but was later found and arrested. The two men inside the home who were taken to be questioned were later released.
At this point no charges have been filed against the people who live in the home on Townwood Court.
Taylor is being held without bond at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.
