Jamel Turner SHOT: Ohio State Football Recruit In Critical Condition

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Police say an Ohio State football recruit remains in critical condition a day after he was shot multiple times and a teenage girl was killed at a house in Youngstown.

Police say they have a suspect in Saturday's shooting of Jamel Turner but no arrest has been made. Authorities declined to provide additional information Sunday.

Seventeen-year-old Tracy Banks died in the shooting. A 4-year-old girl found inside the house was unharmed.

It wasn't immediately clear who owned the house. A message was left Sunday at a phone listing.

Turner, a defensive end, signed with the Buckeyes in February. Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel issued a statement saying that he's praying for Turner. University spokeswoman Shelly Poe said the school had no further comment Sunday.
