Hagen Mills, an actor who appeared in TV shows including Baskets, died by suicide Tuesday after he allegedly shot the mother of his four-year-old daughter and then killed himself.

According to the Mayfield Police Department, Mills, 29, shot 34-year-old Erica Price in the arm and chest as she entered her residence in Mayfield, Kentucky.

Police said Mills had held his daughter and her grandmother hostage inside the home until Price returned home from work.

The child and grandmother were not injured in the incident.

When police arrived shortly after 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, they were met by the injured Price outside. She told officers that Mills was still inside and had turned the gun on himself.

Mills also appeared in Swedish Dicks and the 2020 horror film Star Light.
