Hall and a 4-year-old girl were the victims in the shooting at an apartment complex in north Harris County on May 3.

The child was hit by a stray bullet and was last listed in critical condition, according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.

"It appears the little girl was a totally innocent bystander in a separate vehicle at the time when shots rang out," Gonzalez said at the time of the shooting.

"It looks like somebody just sprayed a lot of bullets towards that adult male," Gonzalez said.

Charging documents revealed Hall had been hit 19 times and Jenkins is accused of continuing to shoot him after the victim fell to the ground.

Jenkins is also accused of assault of a family member impeding breath, which is connected to a struggle with his ex-girlfriend, according to court proceedings.
