CINCINNATI (AP) - A Central State University football player has died after being shot at a Dayton, Ohio, nightclub, and an arrest warrant has been issued for the man suspected of shooting into the club, killing the player and wounding another student, authorities said Friday.
Kordero Hunter, 21, of South Holland, Ill., in suburban Chicago, died at hospital early Friday morning of a gunshot wound to the abdomen, said Ken Betz, director of the Montgomery County coroner's office in Dayton, in southwest Ohio.
“The club was very crowded, and when an argument broke out inside, the club owner broke it up and started escorting some of the people outside,” Perez said. “The owner then saw a woman passing a gun to the shooter, who was outside, and he started shooting into the bar.”
Hunter was shot, and another male student was shot in the neck. That student was expected to be released from a hospital Friday, Perez said. Two women were treated for injuries and released from a hospital. One woman was struck in the arm by flying glass and the other was trampled in the panic after the shooting, Perez said.
An arrest warrant was issued for 30-year-old Jason Dashaun Shern, and police were searching for him Friday.
Hunter, a sophomore defensive back, had been scheduled to play in Saturday’s game between the CSU Marauders and the University of Dayton Flyers, and team members said they would play the game in his honor, CSU spokeswoman Fran Robinson said.
Robinson said that the coach met with the team Friday morning and several team members joined other students and university officials at the school’s auditorium Friday afternoon “to share memories of Hunter and reflect on the loss.”
“We truly feel that we have lost a member of our family,” Robinson said.
She said a memorial service may be held later on campus.
