Scranton Police said that they have arrested Robert Klemish on Monday night, after being accused of shooting Michael Karasevich inside a house on West Parker Street.

According to the police investigation, Klemish wanted one of his tenants to roll him a cigarette, and when nobody offered to do it, he threatened to shoot them.
