A 24 year old man has been arrested in the murder of St. Louis Police Captain David Dorn. Dorn was a retired police captain who came back to help his community in the wake of violent riots and looting.
Dorn served almost 40 years with the St. Louis Police but had retired in October of 2007. After his retirement he became the Chief of Police for a small town in St. Louis County, called Moline Acres.
“He was very dedicated to youth, especially disadvantaged youth,” said Fitch, who led the St. Louis County Police Department from 2009 to 2014. “He wanted to see them succeed. He wanted to be a role model for those young men and women to go into law enforcement.”
Those who knew him said he was a happy guy, a fun guy, and just a guy who always wanted to do the right thing. His officers in Moline Acres said Dorn made it clear he would everyone to a high standard.
"He wanted them to do the right thing all the time," Fitch said.
Dorn was gunned down in the early morning hours of June 2 while protecting a pawn shop during the violent riots that broke out after the death of George Floyd.
The 24 year old, Stephan Cannon, has been arrested and charged with 1st degree murder, 1st degree robbery, felon in possession of a firearm, and three counts of armed criminal action.
