Terence Trent Vos, 31, of Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah, United States has been arrested by the Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake. He is accused of killing his girlfriend Shandon Nicole Scott, 32, of Millcreek, Salt Lake County but has yet to be charged.

Vos and Scott allegedly had an altercation at a residence in Milcreek on the morning of May 1, 2021. Police believe that he fatally shot her at some point during the altercation before driving them both away from the residence. About a mile and a half away, he crashed into a wall on the freeway between westbound State Street and 700 East exits on Interstate 80 in Utah at around 3:00 a.m.

Abandoning the wrecked vehicle with Scott’s body inside, Vos fled on foot before officers arrived on the scene. Later that day, he was taken into custody and booked into the Utah Department of Corrections on a parole violation.

Scott is a mother of two. A GoFundMe page has been created for her family.


Also known as T-Bone, Vos is a parole fugitive and a Bloods gang member who has been linked to Black Mafia Gangsters (BMG), which is known for committing drive-by shootings and homicides in Salt Lake County, according to KUTV. He pleaded guilty to a third-degree felony discharge of a firearm from a vehicle on the highway on November 22, 2006 and was found guilty of the same charge on December 3, 2006.

On December 19, 2015, Vos allegedly had an argument with his girlfriend inside his house before leaving the house and firing five rounds into the garage and front door. The Salt Lake City Police Department issued a wanted poster for him and he was arrested on January 13, 2016.

On May 12, 2017, Vos was found guilty of aggravated assault by a prisoner and possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person. He was found guilty of alcohol-impaired impaired driving on March 17, 2020.
