A St. Louis police officer was charged with manslaughter Friday for allegedly shooting a colleague as the two played Russian Roulette, authorities said.

Officer Nathaniel Hendren, 29, shot Officer Katlyn Alix, 24, in his apartment in the city’s Carondelet neighborhood early Thursday in the presence of a third officer, police said.

Hendren was charged with involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action, police said. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.

They must have been drunk or on drugs. This story is hard to believe.

Yea when I read this story yesterday, all I could think was it stunk to high heaven. I definitely don't believe the Russian roulette story at all.

Whole thing is shady. Like what's a married young woman doing at such a late hour in the company of two men at the office?

Everyone seems to think that cops are somehow weapons experts...that is far from the truth! Most know very little about guns and only shoot when forced to qualify. The cops who do know about guns are avid gun people and would know what they know whether they were a cop or not!

Doesn’t look fun in the movies either. Did you ever see the Deer Hunter?

Surely you can't be suggesting what it sounds like you're suggesting....that it would take a "weapons expert" to understand what can and likely will happen if you play Russian Roulette.

Not at all...I'm just saying that people seem to have that misconception. This incident is pure immaturity and lack of common sense.

I don't buy the Russian Roulette defense. From my understanding, RR involves one round, pointing the gun to one's own head and squeezing the trigger like a big, macho man who ain't scared o' nothing. Ya spins da wheel n' takes yer chances. Quite idiotic, but that's the name of that game.

To point the gun at the chest of someone else and squeeze the trigger is nothing less than premeditated murder and a whole lotta stupid.
