St. Louis- A retired police captain was fatally shot by looters on Tuesday outside of a pawnshop.
David Dorn, a 77-year-old former cop, was shot to death on the sidewalk in front of a pawnshop early Tuesday. Several people have said they watched Dorn’s murder unfold on the social media platform, Facebook Live.
“I just seen a man die on live man! Smh,” state Rep. Rasheen Aldridge wrote on Facebook.
Another person said that as Dorn lay dying, no one helped him, instead choosing to record his death.
“What I just witnessed on several lives has me sickened to my stomach. The man just was shot and killed outside of Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry,” wrote Marquaello Futrell, whose profile says he is a former city cop.
“It’s one thing to be a victim of a robbery/assault but to lie in you own blood pleading for help and no help comes other than people standing around on FB Live recording his death. All over social media. I’m upset and can’t sleep!” he said.
Dorn’s wife said that her husband was a friend of the pawnshop owner, and would check on the shop often.
The video has since been taken down.
No arrests have been made at this time.
