AUSTINTOWN - Authorities say one man is hospitalized and four jailed in his beating following a gathering to celebrate the memory of a friend killed in an Ohio high school shooting.

Police said officers were called on a noise complaint to a Kirk Road apartment at 9619 Deer Creek Apartments in Austintown where the group gathered Tuesday, the one-month anniversary of the Chardon High School shooting that killed three students.

Police say officers left and the suspects beat the 19-year-old victim, who was drunk, to keep him quiet. They're accused of then dragging him outside and into a van, with plans to leave him on a roadside.

Troopers say they pulled over the van and found the bloodied victim. He is expected to recover.

The four others, ages 19-21, are charged with felonious assault and kidnapping.

The men are scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
