An arrest has been made just days before the first anniversary of a Dothan slaying.

Dothan police and U.S. marshals arrested Joseph Hall, 34, of Dothan, and charged him with murder Friday in the shooting death of Andrew Jones of Dothan on Jan. 19, 2019.

Jones was walking down the 500 block of West Powell Street when he was shot and killed by an unknown assailant.

According to Dothan police investigators, Hall had been in the investigators’ sights since the killing, but they were unable to crack the case.

The investigation turned up pieces of information needed to make the arrest possible.

According to police, the Dothan Special Response Team and the U.S. Marshals Service investigators simultaneously raided two homes on Linden Street.

Multiple flash-bang grenades were used to clear one residence. Once officers were inside the home, they seized multiple firearms, crack cocaine, marijuana, heroin and ecstasy pills.

Marshals raided the other home, where Hall was sleeping. They took him into custody without incident.

Hall is being held without bond.
