ST. LOUIS • A lawyer for the family of VonDerrit Myers Jr., who was killed by an off-duty police officer, publicly disclosed the patrolman’s name this week and said his comments on social media show political and racial biases that reflect upon the shooting.

The family said witnesses told their investigator that Myers, who was black, had no weapon and died begging the white officer for his life.
