ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The family of Vonderrit Myers, who was shot and killed by an off-duty St. Louis police officer in 2014, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

Jason Flannery was working for a private security company when he shot and killed Myers in the Shaw neighborhood.  The shooting touched off demonstrations.

The lawsuit has been filed against Flannery, the neighborhood association and the security company Flannery was working for.

The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office elected not to charge Flannery, saying Myers fired shots at him first.
