(Stillwater) — A Payne County jury handed down a guilty verdict the first degree murder trial of an Oklahoma City man accused of killing an OU student at an after hours fraternity party. Korrus Mitchell Harrison (sometimes identified as Karras Mitchell Harrison in previous news reports) was found guilty of murder in the death of Paul Shanor. Shanor was shot in the chest at an after hours fraternity party at a Stillwater Motel January 15, 2006. He died during surgery at Stillwater Medical Center.

The seven man five woman jury deliberated about five hours before delivering the verdict in Payne County District Court. The jury also found Harrison guilty of three counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Jurors recommended a life sentence for the murder conviction, and 10 year sentences for each of the assault and battery convictions.

Witnesses testified that Harrison became angry at being denied entry to the motel room, rented by members of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity at OSU, after a dance at the OSU student union. In court testimony, witnesses said that Harrison grabbed a gun from one of three men who were with him, and that Harrison fired the gun into the room when his arm was caught in a door as partygoers tried to close it.

Louis Jones, also of Oklahoma City, was sentenced to fifteen years in prison for his role in the crime. Authorities say it was Jones who brought the gun that Harrison used in the crime. Three other people were wounded in the attack at the Holiday Inn Motel on the west side of Stillwater.
