DETROIT (AP) – A Wayne State University police officer who was killed in the line of duty has been awarded a citation for valor and posthumously promoted to sergeant.

Wayne State police Chief Anthony Holt issued the honors for Collin Rose during a Tuesday night vigil at the Detroit school. The vigil included a moment of silence at the time when Rose was shot one week earlier.

University President M. Roy Wilson says a $25,000 endowed scholarship is being created in Rose’s name.

A visitation for Rose is Wednesday at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions, and visitation and funeral Mass are planned Thursday morning at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in St. Clair Shores.

Rose was shot as he tried to arrest DeAngelo Davis, who faces murder and gun charges.
