Youngstown State University, (CNN) – A student at Ohio University, Youngstown State has been killed and 11 others, including six students were injured in a shooting off campus early Sunday, authorities said.

All but three of the injured were treated and released, said Tina Creighton, a spokesman for St. Elizabeth’s Health Center in Youngstown.

The dead man was identified as 25-year Jamail Johnson near Girard, Ohio. Johnson was shot in the back of the head and repeatedly in the lower body, Dr. Joseph Ohr, a medical examiner’s office Mahoning County coroner, told CNN. No other details of the shooting were immediately available. University spokesman Ron Cole said there was no threat on campus, but campus police have increased their presence “as a precaution.” (AP) – A shooting in a fraternity house killed one student and injured 11 people including six students, just north of the campus of Youngstown State University, authorities said Sunday.

The shooting happened at a party early Sunday morning and no arrests have been made, but police have at least one suspect, police Lt. Youngstown Franklin says Palmer.

The office of the Mahoning County coroner identified the dead student as 25-year-old E. Johnson Jamail. He was shot in the head several times on her hips and legs, and an autopsy is scheduled for Monday, said Dr. Joseph Or, a forensic pathologist with the coroner’s office.

The 11 injured were taken to nearby St. Elizabeth Health Center, and eight of them were treated and released by afternoon, a spokesman for the hospital Tina Creighton said. She said she could not release the other three conditions.

The school in northern Ohio said in a statement that President Cynthia Anderson met with YSU students and their families that the hospital this morning and called it “a sad day for the YSU family.”

The shooting happened in a brick house with two floors in a neighborhood of houses once elegant, many of whom are now convicted. Nobody answered the knock at the door Sunday afternoon.

A neighbor, Rodger Brown, 54, said the house and an adjacent house with Greek letters indicating a fraternity often has parties on the nights of Friday and Saturday, but had not caused problems in the neighborhood.
