Prosecutor Worthy has charged DeAngelo Lamar Davis, 31 (DOB:6/2/1985), of Detroit in connection with the fatal shooting of 28-year-old Wayne State Police Officer Collin Rose.

On November 22, 2016 at 6:30 p.m., Officer Rose conducted a traffic investigation of Davis, who was riding a bicycle in the area of Lincoln and Brainard in Detroit. Officer Rose called for back up at 6:31 p.m. while he was attempting to take Davis into custody. Shortly thereafter, it is alleged that Davis shot Officer Rose in the head and fled on foot from the scene. A Wayne State police officer arrived at the scene at approximately 6:34 p. m. and transported Officer Rose to Detroit Receiving Hospital. Officer Rose was treated and later expired from the wound. Davis was apprehended by the police several hours later and taken into custody.

Davis has been charged with First Degree Murder, Felony Firearm, Murder of a Police Officer, Felony Firearm, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.* Prosecutor Worthy said, "Universally, Officer Rose was respected, admired, and one that had an excellent work ethic. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Officer Rose. All of us at the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office grieve along with the Wayne State University community and the law enforcement community. This case strongly illustrates the dangers that police officers face every minute of every day."

The defendant was arraigned and remanded to jail today. His probable cause hearing is on December 9th at 8:30 a.m. and his preliminary examination is on December 16th at 1:30 p.m. Both hearings are before 36th District Court Judge Nance-Adams in Detroit.


*The charges are allegations and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty
