According to the Daytona Beach Police Department, just after 1 AM, three students at Bethune-Cookman University were shot at a party at a golf club near campus. One - a linebacker on the football team named Don'Kevious Johnson - passed away from his injuries. The other two - Justine Cunningham and Tre Jamal Williams - are currently in the hospital.

According to the Daytona Beach Police Department, there is currently a manhunt underway for a man named Lamont Postell Jr. They believe he in responsible for the shooting. Here's more, per

Investigators with the Daytona Beach Police Department are actively looking for Postell, who they say is not a student at Bethune-Cookman. 

"It's terrible to hear somebody lost their life," said Logan. "I know college kids party and have fun, but in the age we are with guns and everything, it's a little scary." 

An arrest warrant has been issued for Postell charging him with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
