The Clarendon police have arrested a man in connection with the murder of a 57-year-old teacher of the Glenmuir High School in the parish. 

Head of the Clarendon Police, Senior Superintendent Fitz Bailey, says the suspect was picked up yesterday, hours after Audley Coleman, who is also a pastor, was shot dead.

Bailey told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that investigators have not settled on a motive for the killing.

But according to grieving church members, the assailants went to Coleman's house on Tuesday night and attempted to break in.

They were unsuccessful and left and returned Wednesday morning and shot and killed Coleman.

The vice-principal of Glenmuir High, Newton Knight, says the school family has been left in shock following the murder.
