St. Louis Police Officer Charged In Death Of Fellow Officer

Updated 5:45 p.m. Friday with charges filed ó An officer with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department has been charged with two felonies in the Thursday shooting death of another officer.

Nathaniel R. Hendren, 29, faces involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action charges in the killing of 24-year-old Katlyn Alix. The incident happened early Thursday morning at Hendrenís apartment in the 700 block of Dover Place in the Carondelet neighborhood.

Prosecutors say Hendren, who was on duty, and Alix, who was off duty, were playing a Russian roulette-like game with a revolver, pointing the gun at each other and pulling the trigger. Hendren shot Alix in the chest when the gun fired. She was pronounced dead at St. Louis University Hospital.

Hendrenís patrol partner, who has not been identified and was not charged, told police he had told Hendren and Alix to stop playing with guns, and had turned to leave the apartment when he heard the shot.

3. These are indeed trained professionals

And even they fuck up with fatal results when it comes to handling firearms. We really need to do a better job of regulating these things.
