(Newser) – Two Ohio men have been busted in the shooting death of a 25-year-old student at a Youngstown State University fraternity house. The gunmen opened fire at an early morning party in a clash that also injured 11, including 6 students, said police. One of the injured is in critical condition, reports Fox 8 TV. Investigators are still seeking a motive, but said the two young gunmen had left the party following an argument with someone, then returned and opened fire on partiers on a back patio.

Police are boosting patrols on campus. "This is a day every university president dreads," said YSU president Cynthia Anderson. "I want to express my deepest sympathies to the family of the student who died in this tragic violence."
