Bey was previously a “person of interest” in the case and charges were made official Monday.

Bey was brought in on a parole violation last week.

The 30-year-old Bey has a long history of criminal charges.

According to court records Bey has faced drug charges and convictions that date back to 2008.

He has also faced driving related charges including DUI, reckless endangerment, firearms violations and more.

Officer Hall was visiting family in Homewood last Saturday into early Sunday when he reportedly broke up a confrontation across the street from where he was at.

As he walked away from the agreement, he was shot three times in the back.

Hall succumbed to his injuries last Wednesday after being in critical condition for three days.
