29 year-old actor shot himself dead after 'trying to kill mother of his daughter'

Hagen Mills was reportedly trying to kill the mother of his child when he turned the gun on himself and took his own life.

The actor, who starred in Baskets alongside Zach Galifianakis, died Tuesday in Mayfield, Kentucky, at the age of 29.

It's alleged that he died in an attempted murder-suicide. And now it's said that the woman he was targeting is the mother of his four-year-old daughter.

It's reported that Mills tried to kill Erica Price, 34, before turning the gun on himself.

And while their relationship was originally unknown, The West Kentucky Star now says she is the mother of his young child.

It was reported earlier that Mills, who also starred in the show Swedish Dicks, a comedy about private investigators, had held Price's mother and daughter inside the house until she got home, shooting at her before killing himself.

It's reported that when Mayfield PD arrived on the scene, Price was outside the residence with gunshot wounds to her arm and chest.

It's said she told police that Mills was still inside and that he had turned the gun on himself.

Price was treated at hospital and is in a stable condition. Her mother and daughter were not physically harmed during the incident.

Mayfield's Police Chief Nathan Kent confirmed to TMZ that investigators believed the incident was an attempted murder-suicide, in which Mills was the shooter.

The actor's mother confirmed that he had died.
