A man has been arrested and charged in connection to a deadly shooting during a 2018 robbery at a scrap metal business in northeast Harris County.

Deputies say 37-year-old Courtney Cortez Hall killed a 40-year-old employee who was working at the business along the Eastex Freeway on the morning of November 5, 2018.

According to deputies, the victim was unloading scrap metal from a vehicle when Hall approached him, shot him and then entered the pay station office.

Investigators say they recently received information that tied Hall to the murder scene.

Hall was arrested on Monday.
