Police said Taylor, who surrendered at the Cook County courthouse in Maywood, forced a 30-year-old man from his home on the 3000 block of Lynnwood Court and ordered him to drive.

The victim tried to escape and purposefully crashed the vehicle into a sign, police said. Taylor fled with a shotgun, leading police to set up a perimeter and put numerous schools and a library on lockdown. The weapon was recovered.

The victim was not hurt, police said.
