ASHLAND, OH - Before Whit's Frozen Custard had even opened, customers had lined up around the building around 4:00 PM Friday afternoon, hoping to grab a cool summer treat while the warm weather lasted outside. Melissa Young, the Owner of the Ashland location for Whit's Frozen Custard, believes the secret to success lies in the product itself.

"What we offer is frozen custard," Young said. "A lot of people get that confused. It's not soft-serve, and it's not hard dip. It's in-between those consistencies. What makes it very unique is that it's made fresh daily. Every day we make it, so you're going to get it fresh."

Whit's Frozen Custard is located at 1220 Claremont Avenue in Ashland.

    A 40-year-old man was arrested in the shooting death of a 33-year- old woman at the Stony Creek Apartments in Ashland shortly early Monday morning. Ashland Police say officers were dispatched to apartment B at 230 Mathews Avenue at 1:49 a.m.. Police say residents were hearing gunshots coming from the inside of an adjacent apartment and the bullets were coming through the walls. As police officers and an Ashland County Sheriff's deputy entered the building, they heard gun hots coming from inside apartment A. The officers found the entry door barricaded so they provided cover as the occupants of apartment B evacuated, as well as the building's other residents. A cell phone dialogue was established with the 40-year-old man. At 3:49 a.m., he removed the barricade, exited the apartment unarmed, and was taken into custody. The body of the 33-year-old woman was located inside apartment A and a cause of death has not been determined, although she had a visible gunshot wound. The 40-year-old man is in custody at the Ashland County Jail but no charges have been filed as an investigation continues. Officers from the Ashland County Sheriff's Office and the Ohio State Highway Patrol provided perimeter security at the scene.
