Gunfire erupted at a Florida country club where college students were partying early Saturday, killing one person and injuring two others, police said.

One victim, identified by police as 23-year-old Donkevious Johnson, suffered a gunshot wound and died after being transported to a nearby hospital. Two others, identified as Justine Cunningham and Tre Jamal Williams, were also shot.

Cunningham, who was struck in the head, is in critical condition, while Williams is in stable condition, police said.

Postell, who goes by the nickname Cornbread, is wanted for one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.

All three victims are students at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, according to a Daytona Beach police report. Postell is not a student at the university, but the police said he was previously known for getting involved in altercations on the campus.

Neither Bethune-Cookman University officials nor the Indigo Lakes Golf Club immediately responded to requests for comment.
