Parents of officer slain during revolver game hire attorneys

ST. LOUIS - The parents of a St. Louis police officer who allegedly was killed by another officer during what authorities have described as a deadly game with a revolver have hired a legal team.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that attorney Scott Rosenblum says the team will look into ``all avenues,'' which potentially includes civil litigation. He says the family of 24-year-old Katlyn Alix has a ``substantial amount of unanswered questions'' about her death, given her police and military training. Alix served in the Army before joining the city police department.

Twenty-nine year-old Nathaniel Hendren is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Alix's death last week at an apartment. He and another officer were on-duty at the time, while Alix wasn't working. Hendren's attorney says Alix's death was a ``tragic accident.''
