Cop Who Shot Officer Katlyn Alix Claims They Were In Love, She Was Moving In

St. Louis Police Officer Nathaniel Hendren told officials that he and deceased Officer Katlyn Alix were in love.

St. Louis, MO – The St. Louis police officer charged with involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Officer Katlyn Alix said that the two were in love and planning to move in together.

Officer Alix, 24, was fatally shot just before 1 a.m. on Jan. 24 while visiting with two other officers.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Officer Alix was off-duty when she went to Officer Nathaniel Hendren's home the night she was killed.

On-duty Officer Hendren and his unidentified on-duty partner met Officer Alix shortly after night shift roll call to socialize.

According to Officer Hendren’s partner, Officer Alix and Officer Hendren were “consuming alcohol beverages and playing with their off-duty weapons,” KMOV reported.

While at the house, Officer Hendren grabbed a revolver that was not a department-issued weapon, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

He removed all of the bullets and then put one back in, according to the probable cause statement.

Officer Hendren spun the cylinder, pointed the gun away, and pulled the trigger. The gun didn't fire.

Officer Alix then took the gun, pointed it at Officer Hendren, and pulled the trigger. Again, the gun didn't fire.

At that point, the unidentified partner of Officer Hendren told investigators that he reminded the two that they were police officers, shouldn't be playing with guns, and said he wanted no part of it.

He said he started to leave when Officer Hendren took the gun and pulled the trigger while it was pointed at Officer Alix's chest.

That time, the gun fired, striking Officer Alix in the chest.

The on-duty officers sent out an “officer in need of aid” alert, and rushed Officer Alix to St. Louis University Hospital where she was pronounced dead, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Officer Alix, a U.S. Army veteran, left behind her husband, parents, and sister, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

While at the hospital, Officer Hendren head-butted the back windshield of a police SUV, breaking it, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

He also “spontaneously stated to his supervisor… that he did not try and kill the victim because he was in love with her and they were in an intimate relationship and were planning on moving into his apartment,” court documents read, according to KMOV.

Officer Hendren was charged the next day with involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action for his involvement in Officer Alix’s death.

He is currently out on bond, and is due back in court on Mar. 4, KMOV reported.

Sadly, an Officer had to lose her life to prove this jackhat should never have worn a badge in the first place! 🤬

I said in the last article on this shooting that I thought there was more to the shooting than had been disclosed. So this shooting now involves an affair with a married officer, alcohol and guns.

I suspect there is still more to come because I simply cannot believe that two police officers, at least one was a military vet, could be so DAMN STUPID to play Russian roulette with a loaded gun after drinking. It just boggles the mind.

I must be more "old school" than I thought.

MANY years ago some male friends of my roommate were at our apt. They did the Russian roulette thing too. One told his friend who put the gun to his head to shoot him in the knee instead.................HE DID ! What idiots. Sorry she's gone and he shot her but what do you expect ??????
