If they wanted to murder the woman and get away with it, this doesn't seem like a smart way to do it.

The only way it all makes sense to me is if it was late at night, they were all drinking and the guy mishandled a firearm while drunk. Remember the video of the dancing FBI agent? He accidentally fired it while drunk, hit someone and got off with probation.

Terrible tragedy for Officer Alix's family, no matter what else comes to light.

I think the most likely scenario is this female cop was killed intentionally for some reason and this is a cover up story to avoid going to jail for life. Either that, or the story is true and these are the dumbest cops who ever lived.
This!

If the powers that be (internal affairs?) do not go along with this "fishy story" then perhaps the ugly truth of the matter will be out. I hope so because regardless of the possibility of a sordid nature this woman deserves justice, regardless, jmho.

And she certainly would’ve had time to.
Supposedly the first 2 shots fired on empty chambers, so there wouldn't be any spent casings.

Maybe they were having an affair and she was dumping him, or maybe she knew about corruption of these 2 officers and threatened exposing them or something like that, and in both cases he just killed her in a fit of rage or panic? I think 2nd degree murder is the likliest scenario, because yeah, this seems far too sloppy a murder to be planned.
What really pops out to me is these 2 were on duty and it was 1:00am, so clearly they met at his apt for a reason - and that reason wasn't to play games or watch a movie.

Rus·sian rou·letteDictionary result for Russian roulette

noun
the practice of loading a bullet into one chamber of a revolver, spinning the cylinder, and then pulling the trigger while pointing the gun at one's own head.

She didn't shoot herself in the head, and they didn't spin the cylinder between each pull of the trigger. Nothing in the facts fits a game of Russian roulette, so I don't understand why it is even in the story, or why the cop is trying to claim this is what they were doing? I think the prosecutor should forget the words "Russian roulette" and charge this guy with either second or first degree murder.
Yes, good point. I noticed right off the bat, that it wasn't true Russian roulette, which is what made it fishy. Well, at least there were witnesses. That poor girl is dead; she looks like she could be a college student. So young!

My little voice is telling me that this was a bad breakup.
Who shoots someone from a bad breakup, in front of two other people, all cops?! Bizarre story. And what cops spend their "on duty" time hanging out in an apartment?? I get that night cops are on call, but they're supposed to be on call in their cars, ready to take off when a call doesn't come through. I've seen them at night, hanging out on side streets off a Main Street through town, or in an elevated parking lot, that allows them a good view of the surrounding streets, and that kind of thing. They're not at someone's home, playing games. They have their routine spots where they spend their shifts, waiting in their cars, often--two cars buddied up.

This is going to be an interesting story, as it unfolds. I hope there are follow-up reports.

Maybe the Russians hacked the gun? They seem to be the bad guys in everything these days.

Who? This guy and his mother.

Anecdotally it's not common but not rare either.

I highly doubt they were drunk, 2 of them were on duty.

That is not like this, I don't think the cop's partner is going to help him kill an ex-gf. Why on earth would he? That cop and his mom didn't even try to cover anything, they are just crazy people who drove up and took her away at gunpoint then killed her. A mom helping would be far more understandable than a cop's partner. Why would he care so much about his partner's relationship problems that he'd risk ruining his own life?
