Gabriel was arrested in October for the murder of Carlos Veliz Jr. in Abilene, Texas, according to court documents acquired by TMZ. As per police, Hall and Veliz were engaged in a verbal altercation at 1:30 a.m. on August 31. Gabriel shot Veliz in the head, killing him in the process.

The corpse was discovered in the parking lot of a convenience store, and surveillance video from nearby businesses revealed that someone was driving an SUV while arguing with Veliz.

Gabriel was subsequently apprehended when it was discovered that he had rented an Eclipse Crossover and was wearing a clothing that looked identical to the one in the video. Gunshot residue was discovered in Gabriel’s leased automobile, as well as on his hands and gloves.

He was first arrested by the Abilene Police Department on Aug. 31 for a shooting that occurred two weeks before. Gabriel has been charged with murder, felon in possession of a weapon, methamphetamine possession, and a litany of additional charges. He is being jailed on a $400,000 bail at the moment.

Gabriel also had previously spent four years in jail, something his brother freely acknowledged on The Bachelorette season 16 during his time there.

The Bachelorette, Ivan Hall, and Gabriel Hall’s lawyer have all been contacted for comment, but none have yet answered.
