One Man Arrested in Killing of David Dorn

At least one arrest has been made in the killing of retired police captain David Dorn in St. Louis, Missouri, according to New York Daily News.

The arrest was announced by the St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who confirmed that 24-year-old Stephen Cannon was charged with first-degree murder in Dorn’s death, as well as first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, three counts of armed criminal action, and felony possession of a firearm.

The arrest came after the St. Louis Police Department released surveillance footage from the pawn shop the night Dorn was killed, which depicted at least seven men breaking with masks on. Dorn, who worked security for Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry since the owner was a friend of his, arrived at the shop when the alarm went off last Tuesday, and was eventually killed by the looters.

Dorn had served in the St. Louis Police Department for 38 years before retiring in 2007 after achieving the rank of captain.
