Professional Bull Rider Demetrius Allen, Professionally Known as Ouncie Mitchell, Shot and Killed by His Girlfriend After Argument at Utah State Fair
A professional bull rider was shot dead by his on-and-off girlfriend after the pair attended the Utah State Fair on Monday, police said.
Demetrius Omar Lateef Allen, 27, known professionally as ‘Ouncie Mitchell,’ was found with ‘at least one gunshot wound’ outside an apartment belonging to LaShawn Denise Bagley, 21.
Allen is survived by a 4-year-old daughter that he had with a previous partner named Nyteshea Haywood.
Bagley has been charged with first-degree murder and third-degree felony discharge of a firearm.
Allen had traveled to Salt Lake City from Houston to compete at a rodeo at the Utah State Fair and had arranged to stay with Bagley, whom Salt Lake City Police say Allen had a ‘on-and-off relationship’ with, during his trip.
Allen is assumed to have first met Bagley in Houston, where his residence is currently listed and where Bagley previously lived nearby in the suburb of Pearland.
The pair had attended the fair together and later left for a bar. They then had an argument in which Allen said he wanted to return to Bagley’s apartment to pack his things, police said.
