Retired St. Louis Police Captain David Dorn was murdered in June 2020 outside of Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry in North St. Louis City.
The looters shot Dorn then broke into the store and looted it as dozens of cars drove by on Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.
David Dorn was 77-years-old when he was gunned down by looters.
He lay outside the store bleeding as his death was captured on Facebook Live.
Earlier this week Stephan Cannon was found guilty of killing retired Officer Dorn.

A second suspect, Mark Jackson, had his charges suspended this week. Jackson had been charged with second-degree murder but had his charges dropped. He was put on probation and released on time served. Mark Jackson testified against Cannon.
A key witness whose testimony led to a conviction for a man accused of killing retired St. Louis Captain David Dorn in June 2020 had his own charges in the crime suspended in favor of probation.
The very next day, prosecutors with the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office and a city judge agreed to commute the sentence for Mark Jackson, who testified against Cannon during the three-day trial.
Jackson pleaded guilty on Thursday to first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary and received a 15-year suspended execution of sentence, with five years of probation. He was credited with time served and released.
“I think the sentence is fair and just. I hope he can turn his life around, like he says he wants to,” Ann Dorn, Capt. Dorn’s widow, said in court Thursday.
Jackson had also been charged with second-degree murder, stealing $750 or more, and three counts of armed criminal action. The state dropped those charges.
