    One student is dead, another hospitalized and a third is under arrest after a fight at an off-campus party near Frostburg State University, according to police. 

    At about 4 a.m. Saturday, police responded to the home of 21-year-old Frostburg student Tyrone Hall, of Glen Burnie, Md. He is accused of using a 12-gauge shotgun to shoot two of his fellow students -- 20-year-old Brandon M. Carroll and 21-year-old Ellis Hartridge Jr..

    Carroll died from his injuries, according to police and the university. Hartridge is expected to survive.

    Carroll was originally from Waldorf, Md., and was a member of his high school basketball team. Hartridge is from the District.  He was listed in stable condition.

    Police said Carroll and Hartridge were part of a group that went to Hall's home. They were allegedly confronting people at the home about a woman who was reportedly assaulted at a party just before the shooting.

    Police arrested Hall at his home Sunday morning and are charging him with first-degree murder and first degree attempted murder.

    Frostburg released a statement saying its thoughts and prayers are with the victims' family and friends. They are also making counselors available for students and staff, according to WHAG.
