Taylor turned himself in to authorities Friday night at the Cook County courthouse in Maywood and is now in custody at the county jail pending a scheduled court hearing Tuesday.

Earlier Friday, the charges allege, Taylor 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 by purposefully crashing the vehicle into a sign, police said.

Authorities allege Taylor fled the scene with a shotgun, leading police to set up a perimeter and put numerous nearby schools and a library on lockdown. The weapon was recovered and the victim was not hurt, police said.

If convicted of the charges, Taylor would face a sentence between six and 30 years in prison.
