St. Louis – A St. Louis police officer is in custody, three days after he was charged with involuntary manslaughter for the shooting death of an officer during what was described as a deadly game with a revolver. Nathaniel Hendren was indicted on Friday and booked Monday. The authorities did not disclose the reason for the delay.
A reservation photo shows it with a purple eye. The sources told CBS affiliate KMOV-TV that Hendren was hospitalized for running his head through the back window of a policeman.
They keep it with a bonus of only $ 50,000 in cash, an amount that your lawyer is trying to reduce, KMOV reported.
Katlyn Alix was with two male officers in an apartment early Thursday. Prosecutors say Hendren and Alix took turns to pull the trigger of a gun while aiming at each other when it fired, killing Alix. She was 24 years old.
A GoFundMe page has been created to help pay for Alix's funeral.
A statement of probable cause said that Alix and Hendren were playing with weapons when Hendren pulled out a revolver.
"The defendant emptied the cylinder from the revolver and then put a cartridge back in the cylinder," the statement said. Apparently, he turned the cylinder, aimed the gun and pulled the trigger.
The gun did not fire. The statement says that Alix took the gun, pointed it at Hendren and pulled the trigger. Once again, it did not fire.
Hendren "took the weapon back and pointed to the victim (and) pulled the trigger to shoot," the statement said. "The victim was hit in the chest."
Hendren's lawyer, Talmage E. Newton IV, released the following statement:
The death of agent Kaitlyn Alix was a tragic accident that has unalterably affected the lives of everyone involved. I urge the public, as well as the members of the police department, to wait until the investigation is completed, and all the facts have been presented, before coming to a conclusion about what they believe happened that unfortunate morning.
My most sincere condolences and condolences are with the family of Officer Alix.
