Police in Georgia have arrested a suspect in the murder of a high school football coach.

The Gwinnett County Police Department says the deadly shooting happened on July 10 at a Quicktrip gas station in Gwinnett County, according to FOX 5. Police say that Bradley Coleman, 29, was attempting to stop someone from stealing his car when he was shot and killed.

Police arrested David Jarrad Booker, 20, in relation to the murder, according to the report.

Coleman was using air pumps when a black four-door vehicle with three people inside backed up next to him. One of the men got out and went into Coleman's car and attempted to take it, police said.
