Man charged in killing of estranged girlfriend at Linden Hills apartment

Victim was the executive director of a service provider for Minnesota seniors and those with disabilities

Prosecutors on Wednesday charged a man with murder in the fatal shooting of a 43-year-old mother and small business owner at a Linden Hills apartment Sunday night.

Johnny Leroy Brown, 50, is accused of killing Kesha Latrice Moore, resident of the Cove at Linden Hills apartments in the 4200 block of Sheridan Avenue S. She had asked Brown to move out of her place after several months of living together, according to a search warrant. Moore lived there for a year, and the warrant said their relationship was rocky.

Brown called 911 and said he was in an altercation with his girlfriend, she pulled a gun and it went off, according to newly filed charges in Hennepin County District Court. Investigators cast doubt on Brown's claims. Brown said the woman was dead and provided their location, but charges say the apartment was locked when police arrived. Officers forced entry and found Moore with a gunshot wound to her head.
