Man held in triple murder near NYC's Columbia U.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Authorities say a man has been arrested in the shooting deaths of three men who were killed while they sat in a parked car near Columbia University's campus in New York City.

The suspect was arrested Saturday in the Bronx.

Police say they have recovered the gun used in the June 7 killings. Additionally, they say they have found DNA linking the suspect to the shootings. Police say the DNA came from a shirt the gunman discarded near the crime scene.

Police didn't immediately release the suspect's name, saying they were waiting for charges to be filed.
