David Dorn (November 29, 1942 – June 2, 2020) was a retired African-American captain in the city of St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, working there from November 1969 to October 2007.[1] He later served as police chief of Moline Acres, Missouri since February 2008.[2]

Progressive rioters murdered Captain Dorn on the night of June 2, 2020,[3] who was at the time working as a private security guard.[4] The shooting was posted on Facebook Live. Dorn served on the St. Louis police force for 38 years.

Dorn's personality was described as “bigger than life...a fun guy, a happy guy....He wanted them to do the right thing all the time." The Ethical Society of Police, which represents black officers in St. Louis, said in a news release that Dorn was “the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to.”[5] Neighborhoods were set on fire.[6]

During the 2020 Marxist insurrection, in the month of June 2020 alone homicides rose from 10 the year prior to 32, more than 1 per day.[7]
