SEATTLE - King County prosecutors filed murder and assault charges Monday against a man accused of fatally shooting a woman and wounding a man Nov. 5 in Des Moines.

Authorities say 30-year-old Johnny Rourn of Des Moines killed 19-year-old Jayme Thomas of Des Moines, who was sitting in the back seat of a parked car. The gunfire wounded a 24-year-old man outside the car as the violence erupted between two groups in a parking lot.

Probable cause documents state that Thomas was shot twice in the back and once in the arm.

Rourn was arrested Dec. 7 and is jailed on $1 million bail. He will be arraigned on December 22 at the Regional Justice Center in Kent.
