MODELS STARTING PROBLEM

Electrical problem
1990 Other Oldsmobile Models 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 227000 miles

My friend was driving and all of a sudden it shut off. She waited a few minutes to restart the engine and it did it again, but only made it a few more feet. She was able to get it restarted and made it home, but now, it doesn't even start. The next morning, it started for only a couple seconds and shut off again. When the key is in the ignition, which is a little loose, the door buzzer sounds, but no other electrical component is being powered. I checked her battery and she has 12.54 Volts. This sounds like a starter problem to me, but I could be wrong.
