Robust police investigations have led to the capture of a man accused of shooting and killing 11-year-old Michael Keating on Sunday night, in Rema, St Andrew.

He was picked up in St Mary yesterday and is now in custody.

A source close to the incident says the arrest came after investigators from the Kingston western division received intelligence that he was headed for the parish.

The man is said to be fully cooperating with the police and allegedly claims the death was accidental.

However, he has not yet been charged.                                                       

Keaten’s grief stricken mother, Tameka Graham, told The Gleaner on Monday, that her son was killed by a man well known to the family.

The man vanished shortly after.

Keating would have started grade six at the Boy's Town All Age School on Monday.
