Frat house shooting leaves 1 Dead, 11 injured

A student was killed in a shooting at a Youngstown State University fraternity house in Ohio early Sunday morning, the Washington Post reported. Two men were arrested and charged with aggravated murder, shooting into a house and 11 counts of felonious assault. "Something happened that they became unhappy," Youngstown police Chief Jimmy Hughes said, "they had some type of altercation."

Jamail E. Johnson, 25, was shot once in the head and multiple times in the hips and legs, according to Yahoo! News. 11 others were injured in the shooting, including six students and one 17-year-old who had a critical wound by one ear. Police said more than half of them were shot in the foot.

"(Johnson) was just an excellent, excellent young man, and our loss runs deep," Christopher Cooper, a legal officer for Johnson's Omega Psi Phi fraternity, told the Associated Press. Cooper also said that Johnson had recently gone to North Carolina to participate in a fraternity program emphasizing manhood and scholarship.

Members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity lived at the house, but Cooper said the fraternity did not own the house itself.
