Man wanted for Mississippi mass shooting arrested in Memphis, officials say

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man wanted for a mass shooting in a Mississippi town has been arrested, FOX13 has confirmed.

Quenten Cortez Taylor, 21, was picked up by U.S. Marshals Wednesday morning in Memphis, officials said. TRVFTF tracked down and arrested Taylor at an apartment complex off Garden Grove Circle in Memphis.

Cortez is being held at 201 Poplar.

The shooting happened Oct. 24 in Crenshaw.

19-year-old Deshun Anderson and 24-year-old Derrick Small, Jr., were shot and killed in the breezeway of an apartment complex.

Last week, officials in Horn Lake said a massive manhunt was underway for Taylor after a tip led them to a home in the area of Laurelwood and Shadow Oaks.

Taylor ran from officers, who continued the search at a nearby apartment complex.

A SWAT team was called in, and the search moved across Southaven to another apartment complex.

Taylor was wanted for two counts of murder in the mass shooting, as well as other crimes.

No additional information on his arrest was released.
