Shooting kills one, injures 11 in US
A student has been shot dead and 11 others wounded in the US state of Ohio as concerns mount over the surge of gun violence across the country, Press TV reported.
The victim, identified as 25-year-old Youngstown State University senior Jamail Johnson, died after he was shot once in the head and several times on his hips and legs at a university fraternity party in Ohio in the early hours of Sunday, AFP reported.
Local media said the shooting occurred at an off-campus house, where members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity lived.
Eight of the wounded have been treated and released, while three others are still in the facility's care, said a spokeswoman for Saint Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown.
Police beefed up presence around the campus following the incident, and no one has so far been arrested in connection with the shooting.
On January 18, a shooting incident at a school in the US state of California wounded at least two students.
On January 8, a 22-year-old youth embarked on a shooting spree that killed six people and wounded US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and a number of other people in Tucson, Arizona.
