[Ed. – One person watching on Facebook said no one went to aid Captain Dorn as he lay dying outside the pawn shop. That’s awful; we can’t tell now if it was out of fear of the looters. No arrests have been made.]
A retired police captain was fatally shot by looters in St. Louis on Tuesday — in a chilling incident apparently aired on Facebook Live.
David Dorn, a 77-year-old former cop who had spent half his life on the Missouri force, was shot dead on the sidewalk in front of a pawnshop early Tuesday amid violent protests after the Minnesota police-brutality killing of George Floyd — and several people, including a state pol, said they watched Dorn’s murder unfold in a clip on the social media platform, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said.
“I just seen a man die on live man! Smh,” state Rep. Rasheen Aldridge wrote on Facebook.
The video has since been taken down, and Facebook told the Post-Dispatch that it was trying to gather information about the incident.
