Actor Hagen Mills Dead at 29 After Alleged Attempted Murder-Suicide

Hagen Mills, an actor who appeared in TV shows such as “Baskets” and “Swedish Dicks,” is dead at age 29 after allegedly shooting the mother of his child before killing himself.

On Wednesday, Mills’ mom confirmed to TMZ that her son passed away Tuesday in Mayfield, Kentucky.

Authorities told “E! News” that they responded to a 911 call Tuesday after 5:45 p.m. When cops arrived at the residence, they were met by Erica Price, who had gunshot wounds to her arm and chest.

Police say Price identified Mills as the shooter, and that he was inside and had shot himself. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

From an investigation, cops learned that Price’s mom and 4-year-old daughter — who she shared with Hagen — were held in the residence by Mills. When Price walked in, police say she was shot by Hagen before he turned the gun on himself.

Price was transported to a local hospital and is currently listed in stable condition.

Her mom and daughter were not physically harmed during the incident.

Mills’ mother told TMZ that her son loved acting, but his true passion was his daughter with Price.

He was set to appear in an independent film called “Star Light,” about a teenager who helps a pop star escape her violent pursuers.

TMZ says the Byrn Funeral Home in Mayfield will handle Mills’ service.
