On Feb. 22, officers responded to a convenience store near Santa Fe Springs and Lambert roads and found a store clerk dead from a gunshot wound. Surveillance video showed the suspect entered the store, demanded money from the clerk, then fatally shot the clerk before leaving, police said.

Authorities believe Hall may have been involved in other robberies in Southern California.

Police said Hall will be arraigned on Thursday at Bellflower Court. He is not eligible for bail due to the pending charges.
