Normally this is a very quiet town. Not a whole lot goes on here but to hear that something this drastic went on. It makes you a little worried," said Tyler Wright, neighbor. He was at work around 7:30 Saturday morning when he heard the neighborhood around Krshul Road was put on lockdown so he left to go check on his mom who was home at the time. “She only got a glimpse of the cop cars going down the road and that made her question everything and really lock up the house," said Wright.

Man in custody after woman found dead in Ashland apartment.
ASHLAND, Ohio – Ashland police have a man in custody following a shooting, a standoff and the death of a woman at an apartment in the 200 block of Mathews Ave around 1:50 a.m. Monday. According to a press release, residents called because bullets were flying through the walls. When officers arrived, they say the apartment where the gunshots were coming from was barricaded, and they weren’t able to get in. Officers provided cover for residents so the rest of the apartment building could be evacuated, according to a press release. Police were able to establish contact with the man inside the apartment and were able to get him to come out on his own after several hours.
