Pro bullfighter Demetrius Allen shot dead by girlfriend: police officers

A professional bull rider was allegedly shot dead by his girlfriend late Monday after a competition at the Utah State Fair, police said.

Demetrius Omar Lateef Allen, 27, was found mortally wounded outside a Salt Lake City apartment complex just after midnight and taken to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead, according to a Salt Lake City Police Department press release.

Police later charged his girlfriend, 21-year-old LaShawn Denise Bagley, with murder and disposing of a firearm.

Allen, a Texan who competed under the name Ouncie Mitchell, was ranked number 23 in the nation by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, KSTU News reported.

“We believe these two knew each other, they had attended the fair and then ended up in a bar and had a fight,” Detective Michelle Peterson told the outlet. “Then the man went to take some of his belongings from the apartment he was staying in while he was attending mass and a gun was pulled and he was shot.”

Police said Bagley was being held at Salt Lake County Metro Jail.

“I don’t get it and I don’t know how long it’s going to take me to get it,” said Ezekiel Mitchell, Allen’s cousin, of KSTU.

“The guy who would give anyone their shirt off, why would you take his life?”
