Hagen Mills’ Death in a Mysterious Murder-Suicide Attempt
Hollywood actor Hagen Mills’ death occurred in a botched murder-suicide in his native, Kentucky, on Tuesday after he shot his child’s mother and then committed suicide in front of his young daughter’s eyes.
Nathan Kent, Chief of Police for the Mayfield Police Department, confirms that police are currently investigating an attempted murder-suicide.
Police reported officers responded to a 911 call quickly after 5:45 p.m. on Tuesday reporting that a woman had been shot at a residence in Mayfield. Actually, 29-year-old Mills shot Erica Price, 34, in the arm and chest as she entered a residence in Mayfield, Kentucky, where Mills had a home.
It’s believed Mills and Price began dating in 2012 – four years before they welcomed their daughter, Mila. He started splitting his time between Hollywood and Kentucky, where Price and his baby girl were based. It is not clear when the couple split.
Grandmother and baby girl were in the house too
When Price arrived, she was shot by Mills, however, she could run out the front of the home and call 911. Police arrived to find her with gunshot wounds.
“Price was able to tell officers that the gunman, Hagen Mills, age 29 of Mayfield, was still inside, and had turned the gun on himself,” the department stated. Price was taken to the hospital and was in stable condition on Wednesday.
Mills had held his girl and her grandmother hostage inside the house until Price returned home. Though the young girl was inside the home at the time, as was Price’s mother, they were uninjured.
Price was taken to the hospital and is listed in stable condition. Hagen Mills’ death happened at the scene.
Mayfield Police would not speculate as to the motive behind Mills’ attempted murder-suicide.
Hagen Mills loved his daughter
Hagen Mills’ mother confirmed her son’s death on Wednesday and claimed that Hagen loved acting but his real passion was his daughter.
Though he had been living in Hollywood the past few years, he still had a residence in Mayfield, Kentucky and his Facebook page lists his residence as Golo, Kentucky.
His Facebook page is full of his daughter’s photos. He last posted a photo of him visiting a doctor’s office in March, captioned: “Maybe I am getting old… high blood pressure.”
The majority of his Twitter posts also seemed to be about his daughter, whom he introduced to his followers as Mila in February 2016, days after she was born. “I love this blue eyed baby girl more than anything else in this world,” he wrote in April 2016.
Mills retreated from his social media platforms in February 2017, when his last tweet was posted. His Instagram account, meanwhile, was set to private.
