Retired St. Louis Police Captain Killed Amid Protests, Violence

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Retired St. Louis Police Captain David Dorn was shot and killed early Tuesday morning amid protests and violence in the wake of George Floyd's death last week. Dorn was reportedly unarmed and trying to protect his friend's pawn shop when he was shot. No charges have been filed against anyone in Dorn's death as of Wednesday afternoon. Right-rated outlets covered the story prominently, with many framing the killing in the context of the riots following Floyd's death. Left-rated outlets covered the story less closely, with most differentiating between protesters and looters as two distinct groups. Many right-rated outlets also focused on President Trump's condemnation of Dorn's killing via Twitter.
