MANSFIELD, OH - The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force has released their listings of the “Most Wanted” fugitives for the week of December 11th. Names and details of several fugitives that are suspected to be in the Mansfield area are below:

  • 24-year-old Shameek Price is wanted for felonious assault (a second-degree felony), stemming from a drive-by shooting in Mansfield that Price and others were involved in several months ago. At the time of the shooting, Price was also on bond for another case for receiving stolen property, and has since gone on the run and failed to comply with the conditions of his bond. He now has a bench warrant for his arrest out of Richland County. Price also has a third arrest warrant out of Yonkers, NY for assault, with nationwide extradition. Price should be considered armed and dangerous and investigators believe that he is still in the Mansfield area. The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force is offering a $1000 reward for information that directly leads to Price's arrest. He is 5 feet 11 inches, weighs 170 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
  • 26-year-old Eric Contreras, wanted for trafficking in marijuana (a second-degree felony). Contreras has ties to the Mansfield, Willard, and Shelby areas. He is 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighs 176 pounds, and has brown hair with brown eyes.
  • 23-year-old Ladasia J. Brooks, wanted for aggravated burglary (a first-degree felony). Brooks is 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighs 185 pounds, and has black hair with brown eyes. It is believed that Brooks has ties to the Mansfield and Columbus areas.

People can also text the keyword "WANTED" and send a tip to 847411, or go to the US Marshals website. Reward money is available, but tipsters also can remain anonymous.

    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.
