The Tallahassee Police Department has arrested a man in connection with the mass shooting on Florida A&M University's campus Sunday afternoon, which killed one man and injured four other people.

Davhon Young, 21, of Tallahassee, faces four counts of attempted murder and one count of murder, according to court records.

Around 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Young allegedly fired into a crowd of over a dozen people on a basketball court outside the FAMU Hansel Tookes Student Recreation Center.

Three men and a 16-year-old boy were injured, rushed to the hospital and have survived.

Travis Huntley, 20, died from his injuries.
