Vonderrit D. Myers Jr. was shot eight times, mostly on the back of the legs and one fatal shot to the side of the head, according to a private autopsy report.
Myers’ family hired pathologist Dr. Cyril H. Wecht to conduct a study of the gun wounds from Oct. 8, when Myers was shot and killed by an off-duty St. Louis Metropolitan Police officer.
Six bullets struck Myers on the rear part of his body and the other two were “not directly frontal,” Wecht said. One shot hit him on the right side of the face, between the eyebrow and the ear. Another shot struck him on the side of his left thigh.
