Did Salt Lake City, Utah’s Lashawn Bagley shoot Houston, Texas’s Demetrius Allen?

Demetrius Omar Lateef Allen of Houston, Texas, United States has died. He was 27.

Also known as Ouncie Mitchell, Allen was a professional bull rider. He was ranked 23rd in the world in bull-riding with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

Allen was born in Fresno, Texas. He was in an off-and-on again relationship with Lashawn Denise Bagley, 22, of Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah, USA.


At 12:06 a.m. on September 12, 2022, the Salt Lake City Police Department received information about Allen who had been shot at an apartment complex in Salt Lake City. Responding officers found the bull rider outside of Bagley’s apartment with at least one gunshot wound and immediately provided emergency medical care.

According to detectives, Allen came to Salt Lake City to attend the Utah State Fair and arranged to stay with Bagley. After attending the fair, the couple allegedly went to a bar with another woman.


Bagley allegedly stormed off to the parking lot when she saw Allen and the other woman getting closer together. She allegedly drove off after he followed her to the parking garage to let her know he would collect his things and leave.

Allen and the other woman went to Bagley’s apartment to pick up about $10,000 worth of rodeo equipment he had left in her apartment and her car. Bagley allegedly shot him as he was knocking on her balcony door.

Gold Cross transported Allen to a hospital where he died while Bagley was taken into custody. After being released from jail, she fled Utah to Texas.

On January 3, 2023, members of the Southern District of Texas U.S. Marshals Service arrested Bagley. She was charged with one first-degree felony count of murder and nine third-degree felony counts of felony discharge of a firearm.
