The mother of Hagen Mills' ex-girlfriend Erica Price, Tammy Green-Price, has revealed that the actor had mistakenly believed he'd killed Erica before committing suicide.
Speaking with Daily Mail, Tammy said she had been caring for Hagen and Erica's daughter Mila when he forced his way into their home with a gun.
He tied up Tammy as he waited for Erica to come home and when she returned 30 minutes later he jumped out, and held her at gunpoint begging her to give their relationship another go.
Hagen, who was on bail for previous domestic abuse allegations, quickly flew into a rage and shot Erica at point-blank range.
"She ran round the corner to try to hide but collapsed. There was blood everywhere," Tammy said.
"I thought I was next. But the baby was behind me and my only real thought was to shield her," she added saying she heard another gunshot and then realised Hagen had shot himself.
Erica was wounded after being shot in the arm and her chest, but she was alive and somehow managed to call the police.
"I think he believed she was dead, as soon as she hit the floor he shot himself," Tammy explained.
"This man was obviously a very troubled soul. I would love to talk about what an awful person he is, but there's no point in that. The important thing is that my daughter is going to be ok. She's stable but in isolation because of COVID.
"She's a beautiful person, she's a very giving, kind soul. She has never bothered anybody."
Tammy told the publication that the actor was a serial domestic abuser and had been "terrorising" Erica since their split two years ago.
"He was living in Mayville, Kentucky, of course he was a failed actor. He's been terrorising my daughter for months, years actually," she said.
Tammy revealed the couple had dated for two years and lived in Los Angeles together while Hagen attempted to make it big as an actor.
After their split, Hagen followed Erica and their daughter to Kentucky.
"He was obsessed with her. He was stalking her. I don't know how much the police know because she was a very private person," Tammy said, adding he would often drive to Erica's house to see if she had company and would often turn up to her work unannounced.
In March, Hagen was arrested and charged with first degree rape, sodomy and kidnapping.
Tammy told the publication her aim is now to push for changes in how violent offenders are monitored after their release from jail, "I'm very, very angry," she said.
"Everyone failed here. The authorities failed by offering this man bail. His family failed by getting him out but not giving him the mental health help he needed.
"They would just pay his fines and let him go about, business as usual. But maybe when a troubled child does something horrific, the right thing to do is to leave him in jail.
"I want to see them change the law in Kentucky so that if violent offenders are released they are at least made to wear an electronic monitoring device and not just left free to roam the streets and do as they please."
