A 24-year-old man has been charged with the murder of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn who was found shot to death outside of a pawn shop after a night of unrest in the city.

Dorn was found on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound outside Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner announced that 24-year-old Stephan Cannon has been charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and three counts of armed criminal action as well as being a felon in possession of a firearm.

He’s being held with no bond allowed.
