Alleged Murderer of Retired Police Captain David Dorn Charged
A 24-year-old man has been charged with the murder of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn last week.
After a night full of rioting and looting in the city, the 77-year-old Dorn was found on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound outside Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry, where he was volunteering to protect his friend’s store.
According to KSDK local news, Kim Gardner the St. Louis Circuit Attorney, announced that 24-year-old Stephan Cannon has been charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and three counts of armed criminal action, as well as being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Cannon was apparently also caught on video with a firearm at that time and location as well. At the time the shots were fired, Cannon was the only one standing at that corner, according to the charging documents. The documents also said that Cannon can be seen approaching the door to the pawn shop once Dorn had been shot and fell to the ground.
He’s being held with no bond allowed.
We should be just as emphatic for justice for David Dorn as we have been for George Floyd.
