DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- A man who police say fatally shot one college student and left two others seriously wounded at a party in Daytona Beach surrendered to authorities Saturday.

Lamont "Cornbread" Postell Jr., 23, turned himself in after a day-long manhunt, Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood told the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

According to a police report, Postell opened fire during a fight at the Indigo Lake Golf Club, killing 23-year-old Bethune-Cookman University student Don'Kevious Johnson.

Witnesses told police that Postell showed up at the clubhouse with some other men and started arguing with Johnson and others. The groups started fighting, and Johnson and Postell were fighting each other, according the report.

At some point, Johnson began to walk away and then Postell "cocked or loaded" a handgun and then two or three shots were fired, according to the police report.

The school said Johnson was a sophomore majoring in psychology.

Another student, Justine Cunningham, was shot in the head and is in critical condition, police said. The third student, Tre Jamal Williams, 21, was in stable condition after being shot in the back.

Daytona Beach police say Postell, of Miami, is not a student at Bethune-Cookman, a private, historically black college. He was wanted on first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.

In a statement, Bethune-Cookman said it is providing grief counselors and support services to students in need. The school said its public safety department is working with Daytona Beach police.
