The officer claims the victim fired at him, but witnesses say he was unarmed.
The officer chased one of the men, later identified as Vonderrick Myers Jr., and claims the teenager jumped out of some bushes, struggled with him, then pulled out a gun and shot at him. The officer says he returned fire, killing Myers.
Several witnesses say Myers was unarmed. "He had a sandwich in his hand, and they thought it was a gun," said Teyonna Myers, the victim’s cousin. “It’s like Michael Brown all over again.”
According to relatives at the scene of the shooting, which is about a 25 minute drive from Ferguson, Myers worked in a warehouse and attended high school. “My nephew was coming out of a store from purchasing a sandwich. Security was supposedly searching for someone else. They Tased him,” said Jackie Williams, who said he talked with several witnesses. “I don’t know how this happened, but they went off and shot him 16 times. That’s outright murder.”
Lavell Boyd, who lives nearby, told the Post-Dispatch that he heard 14 or 15 shots while on his way to get food at a nearby store. "When I pulled up I saw the cop standing over him (Myers) then he pointed the gun at everyone else telling everyone to get back while he was searching for another clip," Boyd said.
If you got that one friend that you feel like you’ve known for a very long time, that friend that you trust more than anybody, that friend that would take a bullet for you, that friend that you can talk to about your goals or other things and all they do is either motivate you, support you, and won’t judge you for the stupid mistakes you’ve done, that friend that makes you laugh and encourage you to keep ya head up when you’re upset..I suggest keep that friend, don’t forget about them cause they’re the people that you’ll need to stay in your life to constantly remind you that you’re something, while everyone else thinks you’re nothing.
