The police say they have not arrested any of the two men who were involved in a violent altercation at the St Andrew High School for girls on Tuesday night.

The police say one of the men was shot and the other was stabbed during the fight which occurred during a school-leaving service at the school.

One of the men is a teacher and the other is the parent of a student who attends the St Andrew High School.

However, the Communication officer with the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Stephanie Lindsay, says the teacher is not a member of staff at the all girls institution.

Lindsay says no arrests were made because the police are still investigating the incident.

Yesterday Principal of St Andrew High School for Girls, Sharon Reid told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that there are indications that the altercation stemmed from a domestic dispute.

However, the police have not confirmed this.
