DETROIT, Mich. -- Hundreds of people gathered at Ford Field Wednesday for a visitation for fallen Wayne State University police officer Collin Rose.

Rose, 29, died last week after being shot in the head while stopping a man on a bike.   The suspect, DeAngelo Davis, is charged with first-degree murder.

Rose's K-9 partner Wolverine led the procession at Ford Field, and tried to pull away as he was being led to Rose's casket.

Rose is the third officer in Detroit to die in the last 45 days.  This week, he was posthumously promoted to sergeant and was also awarded a citation for valor, the highest honor awarded by the Wayne State University Police Department.

A funeral will be held for Rose Thursday in St. Clair Shores.   A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with funeral expenses.
