Hagen Mills, an actor who appeared in episodes of Baskets and Swedish Dicks, died by suicide at his home in Mayfield, KY, after shooting and wounding the mother of his young daughter.

According to the Mayfield Police Department, officers responding to a call Tuesday evening were met outside a residence by 34-year-old Erica Price, who had gunshot wounds to her arm and chest.
