A Youngstown State University student is dead and 11 others are injured, including six students after a shooting happened at a fraternity party right off the school's northeast Ohio campus early Sunday, police said.

Officials identified the student killed as Jamail E. Johnson, 25. A spokesperson for the Mahoning County coroner's office said he was shot once in the head and several times in the hip and leg areas. Eight of the 11 injured have been treated and released from the hospital, according to a hospital spokesperson, but no information is available on those that have not been released.

Youngstown police say no one has been arrested for the incident, but they have at least one suspect.

Youngstown State University President Cynthia Johnson called the shooting "a sad day for the YSU family" in a statement made through the school. A school official said there is no immediate threat to the campus, but campus police are on heightened alert "as a precaution."

Youngstown State University is about 75 miles southeast of Cleveland and northwest of Pittsburgh.
