Bethune-Cookman Football Player Killed At Party

We've got some horrible news out of Daytona Beach, Florida this Saturday morning. 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 clickorlando.com:

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.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and families of the victims.
