Her name is Haley Gilligan, a Davis resident, who police say shot and killed a man inside her apartment around 7 a.m. Saturday. However, police couldn’t say why.

“We really don’t know, that’s what we are trying to determine. We know that they knew that each other,” said Lt. Paul Doroshov with the Davis Police Department.

However, late Saturday afternoon, Sacramento-based attorney Mark Reichel said Gilligan was his client. He added that the 35-year-old man found dead inside the apartment was dating Gilligan on and off but at the moment, the two were on a break.

Doroshov later identified the man as Jamie Bryan Thomas Kinseth. Kinseth's family released the following statement Sunday:

"We are shocked and devastated by the death of Jamie, our son, brother and uncle. Our family greatly appreciates the love and support of our friends, and those who knew and loved him. Jamie was a private person, and we request that members of the media and the public respect our privacy during this incredibly difficult time."

According to Reichel, Gilligan texted her mother saying Kinseth broke in and that she shot him. Davis police could not confirm that.

“Detectives are going to listen to 911 tapes and go through that whole process to see what the initial information was and how does it add up throughout the investigation,” said Doroshov.

Neighbor, Kyle Odum, says he’s lived nearby for “about five years,” and seeing a crime scene down the street is something he’s never witnessed before.

“No there’s never been any caution tape in the neighborhood that I’m aware of. It’s surprising for sure,” stated Odum.
