Ohio college student dead, 11 wounded in shooting

CLEVELAND (Reuters) - A student at Ohio's Youngstown State University was killed and 11 other people, including six YSU students, were wounded in a shooting at an off-campus fraternity house, officials said on Sunday.

The dead student was identified as Jamail E. Johnson, 25. Police have two people in custody in the shooting. The suspects had been thrown out of a party at the house, police said.

A 17-year-old girl was in critical condition.

The shooting occurred just after midnight. YSU spokesman Ron Cole said the private residence housed some members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity, a YSU sanctioned African-American fraternal organization.

YSU Police Chief John Gocala said there was no threat to the campus, according to the YSU statement.

"I want to express my deepest sympathies to the family of the student who died in this tragic act of violence, and to ask everyone to keep him and the other students in their thoughts and prayers," YSU President Cynthia E. Anderson said.

"It is a sad day for the YSU family."

Omega Psi Phi was the first African-American fraternal organization to be founded at a historically black college -- Howard University in 1911.

Youngstown Police Chief Jimmy Hughes said the fraternity house had a good reputation in the neighborhood and was not known to be rowdy.
