Wayne State University officer dies from gunshot wound
DETROIT -- A Wayne State University police officer died Wednesday, a day after he was shot in the head while on patrol near the Detroit campus.
Officer Collin Rose, 29, died about 5:45 p.m. at a hospital, Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody said.
"This is a tragedy felt by all of us," Wayne State president M. Roy Wilson said. "Collin served Wayne State with distinction, and we owe those he left behind our deepest sympathies and our strong support."
Wilson said Rose, a five-year veteran of the university's police force, is the only Wayne State officer killed in the line of duty.
Police said a suspect in the shooting was arrested late Tuesday night a few blocks from where Rose was shot, but no charges have been filed. The Detroit man in custody has had several run-ins with police.
Detroit police chief James Craig had said Rose was on duty about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday when he radioed to say he was investigating possible thefts of navigation systems from vehicles and was about to speak to someone on a bike. Officers who arrived on the scene found Rose injured on the ground.
Wayne State, which has more than 27,000 students, employs about 65 officers.
