One dead after shooting over Playstation

ONE person was killed and two others wounded when a Californian university student opened fire following a row over a PlayStation 2 video game.

The shooting took place late on Monday near the campus of California State University in Fresno, 352km northeast of Los Angeles, police said. The alleged gunman, identified as 19-year-old criminology student Jonquel Brooks, was arrested later on after police had initially surrounded a campus apartment complex believing he was inside.

Mr Brooks was taken into custody and will be charged with murder and assault with a deadly weapon, Fresno police chief Jerry Dyer said. California State University campus police said earlier that the campus was open and classes would take place as scheduled.

“The Fresno police department has indicated that campus is safe for classes,” police said.

Police said the dead person was a 19-year-old former student at the university.

The two other victims, aged 19 and 22, were released from hospital after treatment for gunshot wounds. The shooting comes less than a month after student Cho Seung-Hui shot dead 32 people at Virginia Tech University on April 16, the deadliest school shooting in US history.
