St Louis Man, Myron Wilson Sentenced to 10 Years for Aggravated Assault on a Federal Officer

Myron Cornelius Wilson, Jr., 27, of St. Louis, was sentenced today to a term of 120 months imprisonment by United States District Judge Henry E. Autrey.  In March 2019, Wilson pled guilty to one count of aggravated assault on a federal law enforcement officer and one count of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.

According to court documents, on April 17, 2018, members of the Federal Bureau of Investigations Most Violent Offenders Unit (along with detectives with the St. Louis County Police Department) executed a search warrant in the 4100 block of Camellia in the City of St. Louis.  Upon arrival at the residence, investigators observed a number of individuals seated in or near the porch area.  As investigators arrived, the individuals scattered, with a number of them retreating into the residence. When FBI Task Force Officers and Special Agents approached wearing tactical vests clearly identifying them as “POLICE,” Myron Wilson, Jr. fled towards the rear entrance of the residence.  Wilson then pointed a handgun at FBI personnel.  FBI agents and task force officers defended themselves and others by discharging their weapons, striking Wilson and ending the threat he posed.

Wilson appeared in court in a wheelchair.  He is paralyzed from the waist down as a result of this incident.  Information presented at sentencing revealed that Wilson had also been shot by police in 2010 after he refused multiple commands to drop a weapon he was holding.

United States Attorney Jeff Jensen reiterated his commitment to combatting violent crime by stating, “Myron Wilson is a dangerous felon who has repeatedly demonstrated his willingness to carry guns and to use those guns against law enforcement officers and others.  His conduct left agents with no choice but to protect themselves and the community.”

“From a young age, Myron Wilson repeatedly engaged in violent encounters with law enforcement demonstrating his blatant disregard for the law,” said Alicia Corder, Acting Special Agent in Charge of FBI St. Louis Division. “Today he was held accountable for his actions.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated this case.
