St. Louis police release surveillance video of 7 'persons of - interest' in death of retired officer David D

Posted: Jun 6th, 2020 - 10:50 am

David Dorn, a retired police captain, was protecting a friend's pawn shop on June 2 when he was killed. Authorities released security video Friday showing seven persons of interest who entered the shop prior around the time Dorn was killed.

Surveillance footage capturing a group of men breaking into a pawn shop around the same time of the killing of a retired police captain attempting to prevent looting was released by St. Louis authorities Friday.

The video shows seven "persons of interest" running into Lee's Pawn & Jewelry on Tuesday during a night of widespread looting and rioting following a mostly peaceful protest over the death of George Floyd. The men all have their faces covered -- six with masks and one with another covering.

One man takes off his mask and puts his left hand to his mouth. Authorities believe he may have cut himself.

At least two of the men were armed with handguns. The video runs from 2:13 a.m. to 2:17 a.m.

David Dorn, 77, was found dead from a gunshot to the torso around 2:30 a.m. Prior to working security at the pawn shop, he served as a police captain with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and a police chief in nearby Moline Acres. He retired in 2014 after more than 40 years in law enforcement.

“They called him ‘Cap.’ That was the Cap. That was the Cap, everybody knows that was him,” Dorn's son, Brian Powell, told Fox2Now, adding that “police work ran through his veins.”

Investigators said Dorn was killed responding to a burglar alarm at the shop. He often checked on the store, which is owned by a friend.

“David Dorn was exercising law enforcement training that he learned here,” St Louis Police Chief John Hayden said.
