YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — A man has been sentenced to 92 years to life in prison for a fraternity house shooting in Ohio last year that left one man dead and 11 others wounded.
Columbus Jones Jr., 23, was sentenced Thursday after being convicted of murder and other charges in the fatal shooting of Jamail Johnson, a senior at Youngstown State University, court officials said Friday.
Prosecutors said Jones left a fraternity party at Youngstown State University after an argument on Feb. 6, 2011, then came back with a gun and started shooting, The Vindicator reported.
Johnson, 25, was killed while trying to usher a group of partygoers away from the gunfire, according to police.
Johnson’s mother, Shirlene Hill, and three other people with connections to Johnson or other shooting victims, tearfully asked the judge Thursday for a lengthy sentence for Jones.
Shirlene Hill accused Jones of showing no remorse.
