Man gets 92 years in Ohio frat house shooting


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 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.
