An 18-year-old killed in early October by a St. Louis police officer was shot from several times from behind, an autopsy reveals.

Attorneys for the family say the findings suggest that Myers […]

Four former Blackwater security guards were convicted and jailed for a 2007 shooting in Baghdad’s Nisour Square.
