Arrest made in incident that shut down Fla. college

A Palm Beach County man squeezed off two shots Wednesday during a fight at an overnight party in a Florida Atlantic University apartment, paralyzing the campus for nearly 12 hours during finals week, police said.

Authorities tracked Omar Graham, 23, to Johnson & Wales' College of Culinary Arts campus in North Miami, where they arrested him. FAU police said he will likely face charges of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon on a college campus.

It is unclear what led to the fight in residence hall 58, but FAU officials do know that a newly activated campus-wide broadcast system worked as planned in alerting thousands of students of the shooting. The alert was sent out less than 30 minutes after the incident.
