Student killed in shooting near Ohio university

Sadly, it seems like "Omega Psi Phi 'til the day I die" is more than just a slogan.

(CNN) -- A senior at Ohio's Youngstown State University was killed and 11 other people were wounded in an off-campus shooting early Sunday, authorities said.

All but three of the wounded were treated and released, said Tina Creighton, a spokeswoman for St. Elizabeth's Health Center in Youngstown. Six of the injured were students.

The shooting happened at an off-campus house where members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity were holding a party, Hughes said.

Police, called at 3:39 a.m., said shots were fired "indiscriminately" from outside the house. Authorities found multiple shell casings from two semiautomatic handguns, one a .40-caliber and the other a .45-caliber, Hughes said.
