Police officer, 24, 'shot dead by colleague playing Russian Roulette'

St. Louis police officer Katlyn Alix 24 was killed in the early morning hours of Thursday Jan. 24 the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement

A St. Louis police officer has been charged with manslaughter in the death of another officer, allegedly by shooting her during a game of Russian roulette.

NBC News reported warrants for involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action were issued after police reported their initial findings to the Circuit Attorney's Office.

Officer Katlyn Alix, died after an officer "mishandled" a gun and accidentally shot and killed her early on January 24, 2019, at an officer's home.

A probable cause statement says Hendren and Alix were playing with a gun early Thursday, pointing and shooting at each other with one round in the cylinder.

Hendren allegedly emptied the cylinder of the gun and then put one cartridge back into the cylinder, spun the cylinder and pointed the weapon away and pulled the trigger, and the revolver did not fire.

The deadly game of Russian roulette - most famously portrayed on screen in 1978 film The Deer Hunter - sees players load a bullet into a chamber of a revolver, spin the cylinder and then pull the trigger while aiming at their own head.

Investigators say that Hendren took the gun, pointed it at Alix, and pulled the trigger for a third time. She died at the hospital.

Alix's mother, Aimee Chadwick, told KMOV: "She always told me, 'Mom, if I die, it's doing something I love to do".

The 24-year-old Alix was off-duty at the time of the shooting, which took place at one of the men's apartment at about 1 a.m. on Wednesday. The unidentified officer said he felt uncomfortable and "didn't want any part of it" but as he headed out of the apartment, he heard the gun fire, the statement said.

St. Louis police say the charges against an officer in the shooting death of a colleague follow a promise the police chief made to the victim's family.

According to FOX 2 Now in St. Louis, the third officer is Hendren's partner in the police department. She was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. Today, as much as it saddens me and my staff to file these charges, Katlyn and her family deserve accountability and justice.

Alix's friends described her to local media as a nails-tough fitness buff who excelled as a police officer.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, citing sources, reported that he was hospitalized after the incident.

At first, police called it an "accidental" killing after an officer "mishandled" a gun.

She urged the media to "refrain from speculation and drawing conclusions" about the incident, a plea repeated in a statement from Jeff Roorda, the business manager of the St. Louis Police Officers Association.
