Police have arrested a Rockville man in connection with a fatal shooting in Germantown on Tuesday night, a shooting they say may have stemmed from a disipute over money.

Kelvin Parache, 29, of the 1700 block of Henry Road, was arrested Thursday afternoon in a vehicle near New Hampshire Avenue and the Capital Beltway, Montgomery County police reported.

At about 10 p.m. Tuesday, police responded to reports of a shooting in a residential Germantown neighborhood. They found James Allen Frazier lying in the roadway at Oxbridge Drive and Frederick Road, according to police. Frazier, 21, of Rockville, died at a hopsital that night.

Police said Friday that Frazier had been avoiding Parache because he owed him money.

Parache tracked Frazier down Tuesday, following him around Montgomery County throughout the day. Frazier took a Ride-On bus from Gaithersburg to the 11800 block of Oxbridge Drive in Germantown, where Parache gunned him down, according to police.

Parache has been charged with first-degree murder and using a firearm in the commission of a felony. District Court Judge Eugene Wolfe ordered Parache held without bond. His attorney, Terrence M. McGann, did not dispute the no bond recommendation. McGann is also representing Parache in a sentencing for a previous burglary case.
