David Dorn retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007 after 38 years on the job. He rose from rookie patrol officer in 1969 to captain. He was the deputy commander of the Bureau of Patrol Support, which oversees traffic and mounted patrols, commercial vehicles, and the tactical unit.

When he retired, Dorn then became the police chief in Moline Acres.

Tim Fitch, the former St. Louis County police chief, remembered Dorn as a “true public servant.”

Facebook user Marquaello Futrell was shocked when she accidentally witnessed the shooting death of David Dorn. She posted about her experience on Facebook:

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 has me sick to my stomach. It’s one thing to be a victim of a robbery/assault but to lie in your 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!
