Suspect In Officer Collin Rose’s Murder Needs Identifying

Detroit, MI –  Collin Rose, age 29, Wayne State University PD Officer, was shot on November 22nd.  He died the following day.  At the time he was shot, Officer Rose was investigating thefts from vehicles that had recently been occurring near Lincoln and Brainerd, in the Woodbridge area.  A suspect, DeAngelo Davis, was charged on November 25th with First Degree Murder, two counts of Felony Firearm, Murder of a Police Officer,  and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.  The investigation into Officer Rose’s murder continued.

According to James Craig, Detroit Police Chief, “we had probable cause to arrest him (DeAngelo Davis), and he was charged on probable cause.”  He also said that “the investigation never stopped, and as it continued, we got new information. We followed the evidence and the investigation took a direction away from the suspect we had in custody.”

On Thursday, December 8th, the Detroit Police Department released a video showing new coverage of a suspect now wanted for Officer Rose’s death.  The video was released a day after the charges against Davis were dismissed and he was released.  Police Chief Craig said that both the suspect and DeAngelo Davis had contact with the bicycle that can be seen in the video.

According to news sources, a reward of $17,00 has been offered to anyone who may have information of the identity and arrest of the suspect.  The public has been asked to watch the video and see if they recognize the suspect.  Anyone with information about the suspect or the shooting should call Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-Speak-Up.

Wayne State University Officer Collin Rose had been employed with the WSU PD since 2011.  He is the only WSU Officer that has been killed in the line of duty.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Wayne State University Police Officer Collin Rose’s family and his family in blue.
