A Wayne State University police officer who was shot while on patrol near campus in Detroit has died, according to Wayne State Police Chief Anthony Holt.
Canine officer Collin Rose was surrounded by friends, family and more than 150 other police officers when he died at 5:30 at Detroit Receiving Hospital. Rose had been on life support following surgery late last night.
The 29-year-old was investigating possible thefts of navigation systems from cars when he radioed that he was about to speak to someone on a bike. Rose was shot in the head during the stop at Brainard and Lincoln, an area off campus where Wayne State Police Chief Holt says many students and some officers live.
