Man arrested for Montgomery County murder


GERMANTOWN, Md. (WUSA9) -- A man was shot and killed in Montgomery County over a debt he may have owed, police said in a news release on Friday.

Kelvin Parache, 29, of Rockville was arrested on Thursday for shooting and killing James Allen Frazier on a Ride-on Bus, on Tuesday night, police said.

"Investigation revealed that Frazier owed Parache an undisclosed amount of money. Parache believed that Frazier was avoiding him and went in search of Frazier during the evening of March 4. Parache located Frazier in a vehicle and began following him to various locations within Montgomery County. At approximately 9:15 p.m., Frazier exited the vehicle and entered an establishment in the Flower Hill area of Gaithersburg," police said.

That's when Parache followed Frazier onto the bus and shot him, police said.
