(Newser) – Two Ohio men have been busted in the shooting death of a 25-year-old student at a Youngstown State University fraternity house.

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.
