A 26-year-old man was killed and a 28-year-old female was injured after a shooting Monday night about 11:45 p.m. at the Almond Tree Inn, according to Ashland police.

The man, Timothy J. Maust, of Ashland, was identified by the Ashland County Coroner’s Office Tuesday afternoon. Maust was commonly known as TJ, according to coroner’s investigator Jenny Taylor.

The female is Elizabeth Bunnell, and she was being treated at University Hospitals Samaritan Medical Center, according to a news release from the police division.

Ashland Police Chief David Marcelli said in a news release that both Maust, who was declared dead at the scene, and Bunnell were residents of separate apartments at the Almond Tree Inn

Four suspects were arrested through the duration of Tuesday morning, including one 19-year-old man, two 17-year-old males and one 16-year-old male, police said. The man is being held at the Ashland County Jail and the juveniles were taken to juvenile detention centers in Richland and Erie counties. All of the males are from Ashland, Marcelli said.

Charges have not yet been filed in the case, which is under review by the Ashland County Prosecutor’s Office.

Three people called 911 to report the shootings. One woman who called 911 told a dispatcher that “somebody was banging on the door, somebody tried to break into somebody’s house and there was gunshots (and) screaming.”

She told the dispatcher that she did not see what had happened, but only heard the gunshots and the screaming.

The other two calls had similar reports of gunshots and screaming.

The Ashland County Coroner was contacted around 12:08 a.m., according to a call log from the Wooster-Ashland Regional Council of Governments dispatch center (WARCOG).

One subject was arrested by 12:50 a.m., and another was reported to be in police custody by 3:36 a.m., according to the WARCOG call logs.

Marcelli said Ashland police officers and detectives had help identifying the four suspects from the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Ashland County Sheriff’s Office.

Police were searching and waiting in front of the Ashland Apartments building on Orange Street on Tuesday early morning because it was believed one of the suspects was there.

Police were also searching a home on West 10th Street.

A .22-caliber pistol was found at one of the homes of one of the suspects, Marcelli said.

Almond Tree Inn is owned and operated by Transformation Network, a faith-based hiring agency headquartered in Ashland. Dan Philip, CEO of Transformation Network, said he was saddened to hear of the death of Maust and injuries to Bunnell.

Philip said Maust had only stayed at the motel for about a week and had been given a voucher by a local social service agency to stay there.

“He was a very nice man,” Philip said. “It was a shock to the agency that sent him to us, and to us. We pray for his family and we pray for the kids that did this horrible thing.”

Philip said Transformation Network is attempting to work with the people who live at Almond Tree Inn.

“We have people that go there every single day on staff,” Philip said. “We engage with them (residents) and we are trying to minister to them.”

Philip said a Transformation Network employee also lives at the Almond Tree Inn, and helps maintain the property.

“We are constantly trying to make it better,” he said.

There are 12 units at the Almond Tree Inn that are generally full.

Another man died, resulting in a death investigation, at Almond Tree Inn in August 2016. That man was Jeffrey Sanders, who had died of an overdose. Two people, Christopher and Danielle Luce, were convicted of involuntary manslaughter for providing opiates to Sanders that ultimately killed him. The Luces are serving prison sentences for the charges.
