Court appearance is delayed in YSU-area shooting

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — A prosecutor says two suspects in a deadly shooting at an house near the Youngstown State University campus could face additional charges.

Youngstown City Prosecutor Jay Macejko says a court appearance scheduled for the two men this morning was delayed until Tuesday. He says police requested the delay because of possible new developments that could lead to more charges. Macejko has declined to say what the new charges could be.

A college student was shot to death and 11 people were wounded in the shooting early Sunday. Nineteen-year-old Braylon L. Rogers and 22-year-old Columbus E. Jones Jr. were arrested Sunday on charges of aggravated murder and shooting into a house and 11 counts of felonious assault.

Police accuse the men of spraying bullets into partygoers at a house near the Youngstown State University campus. A YSU spokesman said the Indiana Avenue house is frequented by members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity, but it is not the fraternity house.
