(Newser) – A shooting at a fraternity house killed one student and injured 11 people, including six students, just north of the Youngstown State University campus, authorities say. The shooting happened during a party early today and no arrests have been made, but police say they have at least one suspect. The coroner's office identified the dead student as 25-year-old Jamail E. Johnson. He was shot once in the head and multiple times on his hips and legs, and an autopsy is planned for tomorrow.

The shooting happened at a two-story brick house in a neighborhood of once-elegant homes, many of which are now boarded up. A neighbor said the house and an adjacent home with Greek lettering indicating a fraternity often have parties on Friday and Saturday nights but had caused no problems in the neighborhood. In a statement, YSU President Cynthia Anderson called it "a sad day for the YSU family."
