BOCA RATON (CBSMiami/AP) -- Police have made the second arrest in the death of an FAU student found shot inside his off-campus apartment.

Media outlets report 23-year-old Rodrick Demetrius Woods was arrested Monday. He faces first-degree murder and robbery charges in the death of 19-year-old Nicholas Max Acosta, who attended Florida Atlantic University.

According to a news release, Acosta's girlfriend said five men entered a third-floor apartment Dec. 29 and ordered the couple to the ground. Acosta was shot. She told police a bag of marijuana was missing after the shooting.

Police say surveillance video at the apartment shows Woods entering the apartment.

Police are searching for the other suspects.
