Governor to meet on campus with YSU president, Youngstown mayor

Gov. John Kasich will visit today with Youngstown Mayor Jay Williams and Youngstown State University President Dr. Cynthia Anderson on campus to discuss an off-campus shooting that left one man dead, critically injured a 17-year-old girl and caused lesser injuries to 10 others.

Kasich will meet with Williams and Anderson between 3:15 and 4 p.m. today at Tod Hall, where the YSU president’s office is located. The three are to meet with the media at 4 p.m.

“I have offered to them the use of any and all state resources they might require,” Kasich said. “I will continue to monitor the situation and provide any support necessary to help those impacted by this tragic event.”

Police charged two Youngstown men — Columbus E. Jones Jr., 22, of 529 Cambridge Ave., and Braylon L. Rogers, 19, of 174 E. Lucius Ave. — with one count each of aggravated murder and firing into a habitation, and 11 counts each of felonious assault. The two are to be arraigned today.

Jamail Johnson, 25, who was killed Sunday at the 55 Indiana Ave. home attended YSU and five of the other shooting victims are students there.
