Charging decision expected in Wayne State officer's death

"I don't relate this incident to the national wave of violence against police officers", Holt said.

The man suspected of killing a Wayne State University police officer in Detroit has been charged with first-degree murder, prosecutors said today.

Wayne State has more than 27,000 students and is located in the heart of Detroit. Rose, 28, a five-year veteran of the force, was transported to the hospital in critical condition and underwent surgery for his wound, police said. It was not clear Friday what led to the stop, but police have said Rose did not appear to be targeted. The officer was shot shortly after requesting help from other officers.

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

Davis, who does not have a lawyer as of Friday evening, has a December 9 probable cause hearing and a December 16 preliminary examination.

Prosecutor Kym Worthy says he has a felony record. Friends of his family there have been passing out blue light bulbs for homeowners to put in their front porch lights as a salute to Rose.

A couple of months ago, Rose organized a memorial for slain Detroit police Officer Patrick Hill. He was surrounded by his family and dozens of Detroit and Wayne State officers.

DeAngelo Lamar Davis, 31, will remain in jail without bond, the judge said.

In Michigan, two other police officers died in gunfire - Berrien County court bailiff Ronald Kienzle and supervising court bailiff Joseph Zangaro.

In the statement announcing the charges in Rose's murder, Worthy described him as "universally respected and admired" for his work ethic. On Sunday night, four officers were shot while on duty, one fatally. Authorities investigate after shooting of a Wayne State University officer Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2016, in Detroit.

Wayne State University sergeant Cary Glazer said Wednesday he had previously had a run-in with Davis when he was patrolling around the campus in 2011.

He was a "big supporter" of any activity or event involving fallen officers, proposing to his fiancée Nikki when he rode in the Unity Tour, a bicycle ride to honor of officers who have died in the line of duty, according to his obituary.
