ONTARIO, OH - Ocean Buffet has moved its business into Richland Mall, leaving an empty lot at its old location on N. Lexington Springmill Road.

Ontario Mayor Randy Hutchinson gave all Ontarioans cause for rejoicing when he told WMFD Friday that Five Guys has indeed signed a lease and will be coming to Ontario.

The vacant Ocean Buffet building will be torn down and replaced with a strip mall. So far, Five Guys is the only business confirmed for the location, but internet rumors have been flying.

WMFD will have updates when new businesses are confirmed for the new strip mall. Hutchinson couldn't provide a start date for demolition or construction.

    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.
