Cell Phone GPS Data Links Suspect to Murder Crime Scene

OAKLAND — GPS cell phone data was used to help identify a man subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder. The suspect is being held in custody without bail.

The murder happened last year on December 16. The victim 43-year-old Terrence Douresseau was fatally shot outside his home on East 15th Street in Oakland. The victim apparently received a threatening text message from the suspect before he
was killed.

A man was seen shooting a rifle at the victim from inside a car. Next the suspect exited from the car and chased after the victim—shooting at the victim several more times.

This rental car appears to be the same vehicle that used during the shooting. In addition, GPS data from Hall’s cell phone indicates that he was at the scene of the murder.

The suspect identified as Jeffery N. Hall Jr., 44 of Oakland, was taken into custody on February 3. Hall was arrested on a warrant at 1:50 p.m. and transported to Santa Rita Jail.

A previously convicted felon, Hall is charged this time with committing 14 felonies, including murder. The rest are various firearms-related charges.

Last year he was arrested for possession of cocaine base for sale, and possession of a firearm by a felon. In 2019, Hall was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.
