Arrest in fatal shooting of beloved retired St. Louis police captain during protests

Source: CBS News

St. Louis A 24-year-old St. Louis man has been charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a retired police captain who died on a night of violent protests while trying to protect his friend's pawn shop, the city's prosecutor announced Sunday.

Stephan Cannon was being held without bond on a first-degree murder charge in the death of David Dorn, 77, who was killed Tuesday on the sidewalk outside Lee's Pawn and Jewelry. Dorn's last moments were caught on video and apparently posted on Facebook Live, though the video has since been taken down.

Dorn's death came on a violent night in St. Louis, where four officers were shot, officers were pelted with rocks and fireworks, and 55 businesses were burglarized or damaged, including a convenience store that burned.

The unrest came as cities across the U.S. have seen protests and violence since George Floyd died May 25 after a white Minneapolis officer pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for several minutes, even after the handcuffed black man stopped moving and pleading for air.

3. Being framed? How?

Unless you mean being framed, as in being in the frame of the video showing him shooting at David Dorn, otherwise, they've pretty much got him dead to rights.

5. the video I saw showed 8 (?) or so

different people emerging from the store, and they paused to show each one, but showed no one shooting anyone. Are you aware of another video? I'm sure they have him 'dead to rights' anyway. Just wondering where you saw the video.

8. It sounds to me like they did not release the other video that shows the

actual killing. If they have it, it changes things considerably.

I hope they got the right guy. It would be a travesty if he was not the shooter.

I agree with you, though, without further evidence, arm chairing this and reaching conclusions is premature.

It seems we distrust the cops until we want to trust them...imo

4. you have some reason for saying this?

honest question. Is there local reporting that casts doubt ..?

edit: according to the OP link, the video evidence literally shows the suspect with a (smoking) gun pointed at the deceased. so .. another guy did it?
