Youngstown State University Student Jamail Johnson Killed At Omega Psi Phi Party [Video]

A 25-year-old Youngstown State student was killed and 11 others were wounded when two men reportedly opened fire on an Omega Psi Phi fraternity party early Sunday morning at the Ohio university.

Omega Psi Phi (ΩΨΦ) is a fraternity and is the first African-American national fraternal organization to be founded at a historically black college. Omega Psi Phi was founded on November 17, 1911, at Howard University in Washington, D.C.

The two men fired multiple shots killing Jamail E. Johnson and critically injuring a 17-year-old with a head wound. The murdered student was reportedly shot while trying to break up an altercation between two disputing groups.

Six of the wounded attend the university according to school officials. The shooters, ages 19 and 22, were arrested and charged with aggravated murder, shooting into a home, and felonious assault, according to Chief Jimmy Hughes of the Youngstown Police Department. 

“These guys were in the location for a little while before the shooting occurred,” says Hughes. “Something happened that they became unhappy. They had some type of altercation.”

Now there’s an understatement.

Braylon Rogers, 19, and Columbus Jones, 22, both of Youngstown, are charged with aggravated murder, discharging a firearm into a habitation and 11 counts of felonious assault. Neither men are YSU students, according to the university.

Police said the two men, who were kicked out of the party, came back and shot through the open front door of the Omega Psi Phi house.
