MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — A man from Mobile charged with murder is back behind bars. 20-year-old Shaun Pruitt was booked into Mobile Metro Jail Saturday night.

In January he was arrested after a traffic stop. Police say he shot a 41-year-old woman in a home on Farnell Drive back in November of 2020. The victim, April Ruggs, later died of her injuries.

According to a police spokesperson, Pruitt was taken into custody out of state and booked into jail on a charge connected to the death of April Ruggs. Jail records indicate he was released on bond in March. Court records say he failed to appear at a court date in June and an arrest warrant was issued.
