DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Police say a man suspected of fatally shooting a Central State University football player at a Dayton, Ohio, nightclub has turned himself in.

Police say 30-year-old Jason Shern turned himself in Tuesday. Police Sgt. Dan Mauch (MOWK) says an arrest warrant charging Shern with murder and felonious assault was issued last week. Court records do not list Shern's attorney.

Police say Shern is suspected of shooting into the club Friday, killing CSU player Kordero Hunter and wounding another student. Two women also were injured. One was struck by flying glass. The other was trampled in the panic.

Mauch says the injured were released from the hospital. He says they and 21-year-old Hunter were innocent bystanders.

Hunter, of suburban Chicago, was a defensive back at the university in Wilberforce near Dayton.
