An official cause of death has not been announced yet. He was 27.
“We are shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Demetrius Allen, who fans knew as Ouncie Mitchell,” PBR CEO Sean Gleason said in a statement. “Ouncie got his name because he was born small. He grew up to compete with a huge heart. The PBR organization sincerely extends our own heartfelt condolences to Ouncie’s cousin Ezekiel Mitchell and the entire Mitchell family.”
The 27-year-old was shot dead just after midnight mountain time on Monday. According to the Salt Lake City Police Department, they were called to a domestic violence incident.

After being transported to a local hospital, he succumbed to his injuries.
The woman was arrested by the authorities. She has been charged with two felony charges, including suspicion of murder and discharge of a weapon.© 2007-2022 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
