LOGAN, Utah (ABC4 News) A Utah man is dead and police are investigating after a fatal shooting in Logan. Police said this happened early Friday morning and involved a woman’s current boyfriend and former boyfriend.
A frantic 911 call came in about 6:30 a.m. from an apartment unit in the 200 block of River Bend Road. Dylan Milian, 23, had been shot in the torso. Police arrived within minutes to try to save him.
“Police arrived and started CPR – then paramedics arrived and unfortunately could not save his life,” said Logan Police Captain Tyson Budge.
Police said Milian came to the apartment where his ex-girlfriend was staying early Friday morning. They add there was a conversation at the door and she was going to give him a ride somewhere, but that never happened.
“She went out to start the car and the 23-year-old (Milian) went inside the apartment. That’s when the current boyfriend (Jeremy Boyle) fired the shot.”
Boyle lives in the apartment. Police told ABC4 that what actually transpired before the single gunshot in the front room is still under investigation.
They add there were some text threats made by Milian before this happened. Logan Police Captain Tyson Budge said the woman’s current boyfriend, Jeremy Boyle, 26, fired the gun and cooperated with investigators – answering all their questions today. He was then released and has not been charged with any crimes.
In a statement released on Logan City Police Department, the case has been sent to the County Attorney’s Officer for further review and to make a final decision on any criminal charges or if the case will be dismissed due to being a justifiable homicide.
“We want to thank the surrounding community for their patience and attempts at staying away from the area. We also want to express our sympathies to the families of all involved in this tragedy,” said the statement.
There were four children in the apartment at the time of the shooting. Domestic violence experts say these types of incidents are happening far too often.
“Intimate partner relationships are domestic violence and the impact on the children is devastating,” said Jill Anderson, the executive director of CASPA, a non-profit domestic violence and abuse recovery center in Logan.
She says people have to remember domestic violence of any type impacts the children involved.
