LOGAN, Utah — Police say it may take days to piece together the moments before a fatal shooting at an apartment early Friday morning.
Investigators know there was some sort of argument between Dylan Milian, 23, and Jeremy Boyle, 26, before Milian was shot and killed. However, there are “many aspects” investigators are looking into, Logan Police Capt. Tyson Budge said.
Boyle was taken into custody and questioned before he was released Friday afternoon, Budge added.
He said police expect to get an autopsy report from State Medical Examiner’s Office early next week as a part of that investigation and that police will report their findings to the Cache County District Attorney’s Office once the investigation is over. It will be up to the district attorney’s office to file charges or rule the fatal shooting self-defense.
“They’re going to have to make a decision if this was justifiable homicide or if this was a murder,” Budge said.
Police responded to a report of a shooting at 643 Riverbend Road about 6:30 a.m. Budge said Milian and Boyle were arguing. Budge added that Boyle was currently dating a 28-year-old who lived at the address and Milian previously dated before the shooting.
When police arrived, they found two women performing CPR on Milian. Emergency crews took over, but Milian was pronounced dead at the scene, Budge said.
Boyle was taken into custody and cooperated with police before he was released, Budge said.
Police said a 28-year-old woman and the apartment’s owner, a 53-year-old woman, as well as four children under the age of 7 living in the apartment, were there at the time of the shooting. Cache County Victim Services were assisting the family and children Friday, police said.
“It’s sad,” Budge said. “This is an unfortunate event, and we hope to try to prevent these kinds of things.”
