I don't think Russians had anything to do with it. This sounds like a made up story by two 12 year olds. If they don't gt a better explanation than this, it stinks to high heaven.

PS I called bs on the bum/ out of gas story the day after I heard about it.

Their story is non-sense.

Love triangle stuff. This one reason why I think women in the infantry is a very unwise decision.

WOW! Very hard to believe!

Well, either way, it's some type of murder/manslaughter charge.

I hope the truth comes out.

Why is he not also charged with reckless endangerment?

>>"The defendant emptied the cylinder of the revolver and then put one cartridge back into the cylinder," the statement said. He allegedly spun the cylinder, pointed the gun away and pulled the trigger, for which the gun did not fire.<<

So he pulled the trigger on a gun that may have been ready to fire, without regard to where the bullet would go or who else it might hit after it exited the wall of his house? It's minor in comparison to the dead person, but unless he had a good reason to be sure that first trigger pull wasn't going to hurt someone, it should not be allowed to happen without charges.

Why not murder? Involuntary manslaughter is bull.

Pointing the gun at someone else and pulling the trigger turns it from a suicide game to a murder.

The "game" was rigged against her. On duty cop probably was wearing a vest, but she was off duty.

Police said Thursday that a preliminary investigation indicated that Hendren had “mishandled” the gun. Police Commissioner John W. Hayden Jr. called it an “accidental discharge of the weapon.”

NO KIDDING! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what was going down at 1 a.m. in an apartment with two on duty male cops and a young, female off duty cop. I'm guessing twisted sex game gone wrong, or she wasn't impressed by what he was packing. Forensics and the text/cell phone trail may be revealing.

Am I missing something? How is this an accidental discharge of a weapon? Seems even by this ridiculous story that the officer intentionally fired the weapon. So he was down to a 25% chance of it firing, was still intentional as he knew there was a good chance it would fire, and is still murder. Since when do odds come into play in charging someone with murder? If I aim a gun at someone 50 yards away and pull the trigger, there is a chance I don’t hit him, but if I do, it’s murder, not a result of an accident.

and hard to feel sorry for her. She pointed it at him and pulled the trigger first. He got lucky, she didn't.

Hmmm, Russian roulette. Where was the president when all of this was going on?

This more like Rock, Paper, Lead than Russian Roulette.

Agree with the above posts. There is no such thing as an "accidental shooting". This does stink to high hell.

Hey now, these are heroes. Show some respect and if anything was awry, the internal investigation will sort it out with perfect transparency.

That's what I'm thinking too. She isn't alive to refute what they say.
