Dorn, a 77-year old retired St. Louis police officer, was shot and murdered outside of Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry on Monday night, in a crime that was captured on Facebook live. He had been a friend of the businesses’ owner and arrived on scene as rioting overwhelmed Saint Louis to secure the premises.
The video released by the Saint Louis police department features seven different suspects. They’re all wearing some form of face masks- conveniently shielding their identity, perhaps on the grounds of the coronavirus epidemic. At least two of the persons of interest can be seen holding guns as they enter the pawn shop to engage in looting.
A funding appeal to raise money for Dorn’s funeral expenses has gathered donations from across the country, with many outraged at the hypocrisy of race rioters claiming that they’re protesting the death of a black man going on to murder another one.
As of Friday, the memorial fund has raised more than $300,000. Dorn’s wife is still an employee of the St. Louis police department.
Law enforcement continues to actively investigate the circumstances which led to Dorn’s death.
