Police in Boca Raton say a 3rd man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a Florida Atlantic student


BOCA RATON, Florida — Authorities in Palm Beach County have arrested a third man in connection with the fatal shooting of a Florida Atlantic University student.

The Palm Beach Post (http://pbpo.st/1RpDM6m ) reports 22-year-old Alexander Eddie Gillis of Miami is expected in court Wednesday for a bond hearing. He is accused of killing 19-year-old Nicholas Acosta at a Boca Raton apartment that houses students from FAU, Lynn University and Palm Beach State College.

He was booked into jail late Tuesday and is charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery.

Two other South Florida men — 23-year-old Rodrick Demetrius Woods of Miami Gardens and 19-year-old Donovan Malik Henry of Miramar — have already been charged in the shooting.

Police have said Acosta was shot three times after five men entered the apartment and left with a large bag of marijuana.
