Based on a preliminary investigation, detectives suspect Taylor was shot following some kind of argument, police said. It is unclear what led investigators to zero in on Watson as a suspect in the deadly shooting.

Watson is charged with first- and second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault and various gun offenses, court records show.
