TWO men were arrested and charged with murder on Sunday after they allegedly fired into a university fraternity party in Ohio, killing one student and wounding 11 others, police said.
The men had been thrown out of the early morning party near the campus of Youngstown State University after a fight, but returned a short time later.
‘They just started firing in the open door, into a crowd of 40 or 50 people,’ Youngstown police chief Jimmy Hughes told AFP. ‘They were both armed.’ University senior Jamail Johnson, 25, died when he was shot once in the back of the head and several times in the lower body, Rick Jamrozik, an investigator with the coroner’s office, told AFP.

The shooting at 3.30am on Sunday occurred at an off-campus house where members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity lived.
Hughes would not identify the alleged gunmen, but said they are not university students. He said one of the alleged shooters is 22 years old and the other is 20, and both live in Youngstown, located 121km south-east of Cleveland.
