A retired 77-year-old former police captain with 38 years of public service to his community was viciously gunned down in the streets of St. Louis by looters, according to news reports.
Dorn was a beloved member of the St. Louis Police Department for 38 years and was devoted to helping young people. Though retired, he responded to an alarm at a local business at around 2:30 a.m.
Capt. Dorn was shot in the upper torso inside the store. He staggered out to the sidewalk where someone captured video as the retired cop bled to death.
Dorn’s son, Brian Powell, told the press that his dad leaves behind five children and 10 grandchildren.
The St. Louis Regional Crime Stoppers is offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of those responsible for this horrendous crime. There is no honor among thieves, so hopefully someone will step forward and provide information that will bring justice to Mr. Dorn’s grieving family.
In addition to Dorn, four other police officers were shot during rioting in St. Louis.
