KMOV reported:

A man has been charged with the murder of retired Captain David Dorn.

Officials said 24-year-old Stephan Cannon was charged with first-degree murder for the death of Dorn. The shooting happened at Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry on June 2 after a night of looting and violent rioting in St. Louis City.

Police said Dorn was found shot multiple times.

“[Dorn] was murdered by looters at a pawnshop. He was the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to. Violence is not the answer, whether it’s a citizen or officer,” the Ethical Society of Police of St. Louis wrote after the murder.

Cannon was also charged with robbery, burglary, armed criminal action and felon in possession of a firearm.

Police said Cannon admitted he cut his hair to change his appearance after seeing surveillance video released by police.
