Stancil, 20, was arrested early Tuesday after he was found sleeping on a beach.

(Yahoo News) DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The 20-year-old former student sought in the fatal shooting of an employee at a North Carolina community college was arrested on Tuesday after being found sleeping on a beach in Florida, police said.

Kenneth Morgan Stancil III was carrying a knife when he was taken into custody and is being held at the jail in Daytona Beach, said police in Goldsboro, North Carolina.

Stancil is accused of killing Wayne Community College print shop director Ron Lane not long after Lane arrived for work Monday morning. Lane was an employee at the school for 18 years, officials said, and Stancil had worked for him when he was a student.

No motive was given for the shooting, which prompted a lockdown and evacuation of the campus about 50 miles southeast of Raleigh as authorities searched for the gunman.

Goldsboro police Captain Dwayne Dean would not comment Tuesday morning on how Stancil ended up in Florida. Stancil was first approached by the Volusia County Beach Patrol at about 1:20 am. for violating the city’s ordinance against sleeping on the beach, according to a police statement.
