October 01, 2003|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 75-year-old man jailed for a year in Baltimore in the shooting of a younger woman has been charged with first-degree murder because she died two weeks ago of complications from her injuries, police said.

John Henry Moore of Washington has been held at Central Booking and Intake Center since his arrest in the shooting Sept. 27 last year of Pamela Pryor-Bourouis of the first block of N. Smallwood St., said homicide Detective Frank Miller.

Pryor-Bourouis, 33, was shot in the neck during an argument with a man in his van in the 1700 block of Frederick Ave. Moore was arrested nearby moments later, Miller said.

Paralyzed when the bullet struck her spine, she had been treated at various medical facilities and died Sept. 18.

She was the 14th person to die this year from wounds suffered in a previous year, police said.
