DELRAY BEACH, Fla. The search for a man who authorities believe fatally shot three people in South Florida has ended.

According to a news release, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrested 25-year-old Bruce Strachan in Delray Beach on Monday night. Strachan faces three counts of first-degree murder. His bond had not yet been set early Tuesday morning.

It is unclear if Strachan already has an attorney.

Authorities believe Strachan shot Debbie Sears, Yamika Murphy and Ronald Anthony Wright after an argument in Lake Worth on Saturday.

Investigators say Strachan fled the scene after the shooting, prompting the manhunt.
