Charges Seen in Detroit College Cop Killing

November 25, 2016

DETROIT — Charges could be announced Nov. 25 against a suspect being held in the fatal shooting this week of a Wayne State University police officer in Detroit.

Maria Miller, spokeswoman for Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, said in an email Nov. 24 that the prosecutor’s office had received a warrant request in connection with the shooting death of Wayne State Officer Collin Rose. Miller said that there would be a decision on charges on Nov. 25.

Rose, 29, was shot in the head the night of Nov. 22 while on patrol near the Wayne State campus in Detroit. The five-year veteran of the university police force died the night of Nov. 23 in a hospital.

Detroit police said they arrested a suspect late Nov. 22 a few blocks from where Rose was shot, but he had not been charged.

Wayne State, which has more than 27,000 students, employs about 65 officers. Rose, who worked in the canine unit, is the only Wayne State officer killed in the line of duty.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Rose was on duty around 6:30 p.m. Nov. 22 when he radioed to say he was investigating possible thefts of navigation systems from vehicles and that he was about to speak to someone on a bicycle.

Officers who arrived on the scene found Rose injured on the ground. He underwent surgery the night of Nov. 22 at Detroit Receiving Hospital.

Wayne State Police Chief Anthony Holt said Nov. 23 that no weapon had been recovered and that the investigation was ongoing.
