SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4) – Salt Lake City Police is currently investigating a domestic violence case that has resulted in the death of a 27-year-old man.
Demetrius Omar Lateef Allen, also known by his riding name Ouncie Mitchell, was found with a gunshot wound by responding officers outside of an apartment complex located near 900 South and 200 West. Officers immediately provided emergency medical care until Gold Cross transported Allen to a local hospital where he died to his wounds.
Police say they have safely taken the suspect, 21-year-old LaShawn Denise Bagley, into custody.
Through an investigation led by the SLCPD Homicide Squad with the assistance of the SLCPD Crime Lab, police determined Allen and Bagley knew each other and had been in a on-again off-again relationship. It is believed that Allen came to Salt Lake City to attend the Utah State Fair as a professional bull rider and was staying with Bagley.
Police say the two got into an argument at a bar in downtown Salt Lake City after attending the fair. When Allen went to Bagley’s apartment to collect his things, shots were fired, leaving multiple bullet holes.
Bagley has been booked into the Salt Lake County Metro Jail on charges of Murder and Felony Discharge of a Firearm.
Police say this is the 10th homicide case in Salt Lake City for 2022.
No other information is available at this time.
