ASHLAND, OH - Arick Hlovac, 40, was arrested in the shooting death of his 33-year-old wife, Charity Hlovac, 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 Airick Hlovac.

At 3:49 a.m., he removed the barricade, exited the apartment unarmed, and was taken into custody.

The body of the Charity Hlovac was located inside apartment A and a cause of death has not been determined, although she had a visible gunshot wound.

Airick Hlovac 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.
