Two men were arrested Sunday in the shooting death of a 19-year-old man at a house party in Loudoun County, authorities said.

Guillermo A. Alvarado, 20, of Berryville, and Rasheed L. Nurse, 26, of Herndon, were charged with second-degree murder in connection with the shooting outside a house on Tappahannock Place near Lowes Island Boulevard in Sterling, authorities said. Alvarado and Nurse apparently got into an altercation with the 19-year-old, and Nurse pulled out a gun and shot him, police said. He was transported to a hospital, where he later died.

Police did not immediately identify the 19-year-old because his family members had not been notified of his death. Kraig Troxell, a spokesman for the Loudon County Sheriff's Office, said investigators are still working to determine what sparked the altercation. The incident occurred at about 3 a.m.


  1. wow I can't believe they live on the same street! That is crazy and scary. Looks like the author did spell Loudoun County "Loudon" in the last paragraph :)

  2. HAHAHA! OK, so maybe Kentucky isn't the only one with spelling errors. Thanks Eve, you just made me feel so much better!!
