Accused police officer killer arraigned in Detroit

DETROIT, Mich (WLNS/AP) – A 31-year-old man has been arraigned after being charged with murder and other crimes in the fatal shooting of a college police officer in Detroit.

DeAngelo Davis is being held without bond after today’s arraignment.

He is accused of shooting Collin Rose in the head when the Wayne State University officer tried to arrest him Tuesday.

Davis was charged Friday with first-degree murder, murder of a police officer and gun crimes. Prosecutor Kym Worthy says he has a felony record.

Davis was in court this morning for the arraignment and has no attorney.

Rose was investigating possible thefts of navigation systems from vehicles near the Wayne State campus. The prosecutor says he was “respected” and “admired.”

A GoFundMe page for funeral and memorial expenses for Collin Rose has nearly topped $30,000 as of Friday afternoon.

Wayne State University says it is also accepting donations in the memory of a campus police officer who was killed in the line of duty.

The school says the gifts will be used to support the university’s police department.
