DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A man suspected of fatally shooting a college football player and wounding two other students after a fight at a party in Daytona Beach is being charged with first-degree murder.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that 23-year-old Lamont Postell Jr. surrendered to police late Saturday and is also being charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Police say Postell fatally shot 23-year-old Don'Kevious Johnson, a former Glades Central football player, after a fight at the Indigo Lakes Golf Club, where a group of students had gathered for a party.
