Posted 351 days ago ago by News Editor

For Immediate Release


The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office issued warrants on Monday, April 29, 2013 on Jerrin Brown, 32 years of age, of the 900 block of Sprinters Row Drive, Florissant, Missouri 63034 for one count of First Degree Murder and one count of Armed Criminal Action. A $250,000 bond was issued on this case. A photo of Brown is attached.

The charges were issued after the victim, 20 year old Paul Moore, was shot and killed on the morning of Sunday, April 28, 2013. Moore, of the 6900 block of Lake Valley in Florissant, Missouri, arrived at the 9300 block of Koenig Circle in the City of Berkeley as a rear passenger in a vehicle with three other individuals. One of the passengers exited the vehicle while the others, including Moore, waited. Brown reportedly approached the vehicle and shot Moore. The driver quickly drove away from the scene until he observed several police officers at the Quick Trip at Natural Bridge and Interstate 170, two blocks away, where he pulled over for assistance. The victim was declared deceased shortly thereafter.

The Berkeley Police Department turned the homicide investigation over to the St. Louis County Police Department's Division of Criminal Investigation, Bureau of Crimes Against Persons, which led to the arrest of Brown and the above charges being issued.
