YOUNGSTOWN: Ohio's governor says a deadly shooting at a college fraternity party is a sign of larger problems that need to be dealt with in the northeast Ohio city where it happened.

Gov. John Kasich told officials in Youngstown on Monday that he will have Ohio's public safety chief and the State Highway Patrol commander meet with the city's mayor. The Tribune Chronicle of Warren reports the governor said the three could work together on a plan to fight crime, gun violence, drugs and underage drinking in Youngstown.

A Youngstown State University student was killed and 11 people were injured in gunfire early Sunday at the Omega Psi Phi fraternity house. Two suspects were expected to appear in court Tuesday.

Flags were at half-staff on campus when Kasich visited Monday.
