It’s Not A Gangsta Memorial Until Someone Gets Shot

Dubbed the “sandwich shooter,” VanDerrit Myers was shot two years ago this week in the Shaw district of St. Louis (my old neighborhood).  A vigil of about 20 or so people was held on the corner of Klemm and Shaw when shots rang out and three people were wounded.

Myers earned his moniker because his mom claimed he was just standing out there on the street eating a sandwich that the off duty officer mistook for a gun.  She never did explain why her son ran from the neighborhood patrol vehicle or how he fired on the off duty officer with his sandwich.
