Police: 1 dead, 11 shot at Ohio fraternity house

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Authorities in northeast Ohio say a shooting at a fraternity house just north of the Youngstown State University campus killed one student and injured 11 people, including six students.

Youngstown police Lt. Franklin Palmer says the shooting happened during a party early Sunday and no arrests have been made, but police have at least one suspect.

The Mahoning County coroner’s office has identified the dead student as 25-year-old Jamail E. Johnson and says he was shot in the head and legs.

Information on the identities and conditions of the injured was not immediately available.

The school says YSU President Cynthia Anderson met students and their families as the hospital this morning and called it “a sad day for the YSU family.”

Associated Press writer Sofia Mannos in Washington contributed to this report.
