One Student Dead, 11 Wounded in Shooting

Jamail E. Johnson, 25, a student of Ohio’s Youngstown State University, was killed.

11 other people were wounded in a shooting at an off-campus fraternity house, said officials. A 17-year-old girl was in critical condition.

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

The suspects had been thrown out of a party at the house, police said. They have two people in custody.

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

By the way, the fraternity house had a good reputation in the neighborhood and was not known to be rowdy.
