Shooting At Omega Psi Phi Frat Party
A 25-year-old Youngstown State student was killed and 11 others were wounded when two men reportedly opened fire on an Omega Psi Phi fraternity party early Sunday (February 6) morning at the Ohio university.
The two men let off multiple shots killing Jamail E. Johnson and critically injuring a 17-year-old with a head wound.
The murdered student was reportedly shot while trying to break up an altercation between two disputing groups.
Six of the wounded attend the university according to school officials.
The shooters, ages 19 and 22, were arrested and charged with aggravated murder, shooting into a home, and felonious assault, according to Chief Jimmy Hughes of the Youngstown Police Department.
“These guys were in the location for a little while before the shooting occurred,” says Hughes. “Something happened that they became unhappy. They had some type of altercation.”
