YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – A man has been sentenced to 92 years in prison for a shooting at a fraternity house in Ohio last year in which one man was killed and 11 others were wounded.
The Youngstown Vindicator reports that 23-year-old Columbus Jones Jr. was sentenced Thursday after a being convicted of murder and other charges.
Prosecutors say Jones left a frat party at Youngstown State after an argument on Feb. 6, 2011, then came back with a gun and started shooting. Police say Youngstown State senior Jamail Johnson was killed while trying to usher a group of partygoers away from the gunfire and out of harm's way.
Several others were charged in connection with the shooting and await trial.
