Two arrested in fatal US frat house shooting

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Two men have been arrested and charged in a shooting at an Ohio fraternity house that killed one student and injured 11 people at a party just north of the Youngstown State University campus.

Youngstown police Chief Jimmy Hughes says each man is charged with aggravated murder, shooting into a house and 11 counts of felonious assault.

He said the men are in their early 20s and from the Youngstown area, but he withheld their names pending further investigation.

Hughes said earlier that the suspected gunmen were involved in a dispute at a party, left, then returned and began firing outside the crowded house early Sunday.

The 11 people who were hurt ranged in age from 17 to 31. Eight have been released from the hospital.
