Stephan Cannon was being held without bond on a first-degree murder charge in the death of David Dorn, 77, who was killed on Tuesday on the sidewalk outside Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry. Dorn’s last moments were caught on video and apparently posted on Facebook Live, though the video has since been taken down.

Dorn’s death came on a violent night in St Louis, where four officers were shot, officers were pelted with rocks and fireworks, and 55 businesses were looted or damaged, including a convenience store that burnt.
