    Where does it say there is a PC on Friday, and does anyone know the time?

    I think the editors <accidentally>missed a couple of accidental references in that lead sentence, though. I'm pretty sure what they meant to say was:

    An <accidentally>off-duty police officer was accidentally shot and killed by another officer in St. Louis early Thursday morning, authorities <accidentally> said.

    I hope the truth comes out soon, whatever it is. Easy to see that the two who were on duty should, at a minimum, be fired. As for the shooting, nobody could ask for anything less than a thorough investigation.
    But a sweeping condemnation of a whole group of people is unwarranted and unfair.

    This isn't looking good, is it? Also snipped from same article:

    Why were the two male officers, who were supposed to be patrolling another part of town, inside a home with Alix, who was off-duty? Why was one of those officers handling a revolver that reportedly wasn’t a service weapon?

    And most important, how could a highly trained cop accidentally fire the gun straight into Alix’s chest?


    I wish the involved officers well with crafting their responses to these 3 questions.
    As a general rule, I give LE the benefit of the doubt in any officer-involved shooting...they have dangerous jobs.

    This time, my eyebrows are firmly lodged somewhere north of my forehead.

    Only to everyone who wasn't there I'm sure. Waiting to hear the rest of the story, which can't be good any way you look at it.

    Charges have been filed against the officer who shot the victim. The story sounds like both of them were playing a Russian Roulette type game with the shooters personal gun. Outrageous!! These are trained police officers! What a tragic end to a stupid game.

    “Hendren has not been arrested and is still being sought.”
    I thought he was in the hospital. What is this “being sought” crap?

    WHAAAAAATTTT????? He's not even been questioned yet? What is going ON?

    At least they've named him.

    I understand that his partner explained what had been going on, per above article.

    Russian roulette is a way to justify the shooting as accidental. "See, we were just playing a game..."

    Not buying what the partner is selling.

    I'm concerned that the victim isn't able to tell her version of what happened...

    Not to mention that his partner was “on his way out!”
