Ohio college student killed, 11 wounded, university says

A student at Ohio's Youngstown State University was killed and 11 others, including six students, were wounded in an off-campus shooting Sunday morning, university officials said.

No further details were immediately available about the shooting in the northeast Ohio city, and the condition of the wounded was not known. University spokesman Ron Cole said there was no threat to the campus, but campus police have stepped up their presence "as a precaution."

    @someothername...thank you. Very enlightening post. Just one question, if I may be so bold. (vast understatement if you really knew me) Sooooo, what yer sayin' is, there wouldda been LESS bloodshed had everyone been packin' heat? (even if only fully grown adults in control of their faculties) It seems to me that at least one more would have been murdered, if even from the crossfire.

    And did I say "murdered", not just "killed"? Why yes I did! MURDER: def. 'the taking of human life with malice aforethought'. Even innocents caught in the crossfire are victims of murder. The thugs who carried weapons knew full well that if they were to pull them, innocents may or may not have been killed in the crossfire. But that would make gun-toting students guilty as well. And we can't have that perspective now can we, not without being labeled "anti-gun".

    This is a very sad day for the families.The state of Ohio and Youngstown needs to have stronger laws . I live in the area and the National Guard needs to be deployed to protect us. The city needs to be on locked down until, most of the crimes committed are from second offenders.

    Wake up America we need to protect our cities.Stronger gun legislation,drug dealers first offense give them a job filling pot holes,make the work and due the time why should families continue to suffer from people who continue to abuse the system. Another students life taken we need to weep. Is this democracy?

    @Adele...Our systems are designed to be abused. And you can't force people to love and have respect for their neighbors, no matter how hard you try.

    Don't ask Americans to be logical about something as illogical as handguns and assault weapons; it's BEYOND reason!
