MANSFIELD, Ohio — A 19-year-old woman wanted in connection to the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old boy at an apartment on King Street Friday afternoon has turned herself in to the Mansfield Division of Police, police said Monday.

Police say the woman shot the boy multiple times following an apparent argument. She then fled the apartment on foot and has not been located.

"We are relieved that [the woman] made the decision to turn herself in and we want to thank everyone who has provided information and assisted with the investigation. We are asking anyone who has information concerning this case to contact Detective Terry Butler at (419) 755-9791," Captain Shari Robertson said in an update Monday after her arrest.

Police said the woman remains incarcerated at the Richland County Jail.

Police said they do not believe this shooting is related to the two prior shooting incidents in Mansfield.
