LOGAN — A 23-year-old man is dead and a 26-year-old man was questioned following a shooting early Friday morning inside an apartment building at 234 Riverbend Road in Logan.
The shooting was reported at 6:30 a.m. after a 28-year-old woman, Jordan Oakden, called 911. She claimed that her ex-boyfriend, Dylan Milian, was allegedly shot by her current boyfriend, Jeremy Boyle.
Millian was reportedly shot in the chest and not breathing. Boyle’s mother, Cynthia Trinder who rents the apartment, had started performing CPR.
Logan City Police Capt. Tyson Budge said when officers arrived on the scene they determined the Millian had died.
“Officers responded along with medical personnel, they did locate an adult male, with a gunshot wound and he was pronounced dead at the scene,” explained Budge. “Another adult male in the residence was taken to the Logan City Police Department, to start our investigation of this incident.”
Boyle was taken into custody peacefully for questioning and cooperated with investigators. He was later released pending the continuing investigation.
There were eight people inside the two-bedroom apartment when the shooting occurred. Four of the occupants were children, seven-years-old and younger.
Budge said the shooting appeared to be a domestic argument that turned deadly. The was no outside threat to the public.
“We’re not sure what the relationship is for sure yet but they are related, there is a relationship here between all the players and all the involved parties. So were just trying to work through that right now,” stated Budge.
“We’re working with victim’s services, to get the kids and anyone else in the apartment up to the Children’s Justice Center, to start the forensic interviews and that kind of stuff up there, to make sure they are taken care of.”
Officers located the suspected handgun inside one of the apartment bedrooms.
Budge said there are many aspects of the investigation that will take some time to sort through. The State Medical Examiner’s office will also do their investigation and share their findings early next week.
“We know who all the involved parties are and will now put together the evidence. After a thorough investigation we will present the information to the County Attorney’s office for a decision on any criminal charges or justifiable homicide,” Budge said.
Police expressed their sympathies to the families of those involved.
