A second man has been charged with the murder of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner announced. Dorn was killed earlier this month during riots.

Mark Jackson, 22, now faces second-degree murder charges as well as three counts of armed criminal action, robbery, and burglary.

The crime took place on June 2 when Dorn responded to an alarm at Lee's Pawn and Jewelry, a shop owned by a friend. Authorities allege that video surveillance shows Jackson, along with the suspected shooter Stephan Cannon, looting the store when Dorn arrived.

The murder was captured on video and momentarily posted to Facebook Live, before being removed from the platform. Cannon was previously charged with first degree murder.

Both men are being held in prison without bond.
