Taylor in 2013 became mayor of North Ogden, a city of about 17,000 people 46 miles (74 kilometers) north of Salt Lake City. "We feel blessed to have had him as our mayor". Major General Jefferson Burton, adjutant general of the Utah National Guard, confirmed that the person who opened fire on Taylor was killed immediately.

Over the past 10 months, Taylor posted periodic updates of his Afghanistan service to Facebook, often sounding and looking optimistic.

Taylor's last Facebook post touched on how inspired he had been by the elections in Afghanistan, as he encouraged people in the United States to vote on Tuesday.

Ten Utah National Guard soldiers have now died since 2003 in service of military efforts in Iraq or Afghanistan, according to National Guard data. The Guard's statement did not name Taylor, however, as it waited for the Defense Department to officially release his name.
