Man Arrested After Threatening Another with a Gun

A Paducah man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after police say he threatened a man with a handgun and shot into an unoccupied vehicle. The Paducah Police Department says a man told officers he went to his mother’s home on South 9th Street shortly after 4 p.m. in response to an altercation between his mother and 25-year-old Quenterrius Frazier. The man found Frazier in his mother’s car and a struggle ensued. The man said Frazier then got a handgun from the vehicle and pointed it at him. The man then ran to his mother’s home, and said he heard two gunshots outside. Police found the right rear window and the headliner of the woman’s car were hit by bullets. Officers found Frazier in the 1300 block of South 8th Street. They found the gun hidden in some brush nearby. Officers arrested Frazier on charges of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, first-degree wanton endangerment, second-degree criminal mischief, tampering with physical evidence, and on a bench warrant charging him with failing to appear. Frazier reportedly admitted he had fired the shots, but said he did not shoot toward the victim. He was booked into McCracken County Regional Jail.
