DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The suspect in a triple shooting that killed two Bethune-Cookman University students died after hanging himself in his Miami jail cell.

According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://bit.ly/1FUi6pW) Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood said he learned Saturday afternoon about York Zed Bodden’s death.

Chitwood said, “He saved the state the expense.”

Officials said Bodden was arrested Friday in North Miami after fatally shooting Diona McDonald and Timesha “Lisa” Carswell and critically injuring Micah Parham, also a B-CU student, Thursday in a residence at Carolina Club Apartments in Daytona Beach.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Thursday the suspect had been asked to leave the residence. They had asked a male friend to help them evict Bodden.

Chitwood said the women were shot in the head and the man was sprayed with bullets.
