COLLEGE STATION -- An 18-year-old A&M Consolidated High School senior is behind bars tonight for brutally murdering Edwin Shaar Jr. in his home last Thursday night.

Police arrested Gabriel Paul Hall Friday night after a jogger came forward after seeing someone who matched the suspect's description near Deacon Drive the night of the murder.

That witness was then able to identify Hall from a yearbook picture.

Documents obtained by Fox 28 show Hall walked into the Shaar's open garage, shot and stabbed Mr. Shaar. He then went into the home and stabbed his wife.

Police say Hall confessed to the crime but did not give a reason as to why he chose the Shaar's home or why the couple was attacked.

He's being charged with capital murder and is in the Brazos County Jail.
