Officer Collin Rose, 29

DETROIT (AP) — Wayne State University says it is accepting donations in the memory of a campus police officer who was killed in the line of duty.

The school says the gifts will be used to support the university’s police department.

Officer Collin Rose was shot in the head Tuesday while investigating possible thefts of navigation systems from vehicles near the Wayne State campus on Detroit’s west side.

The suspect, DeAngelo Davis, was arrested that night and arraigned Friday on first-degree murder, murder of a police officer and gun charges.

A judge ordered the 31-year-old Davis jailed without bond. His next hearing is set for Dec. 9.

Wayne State Police Chief Anthony Holt says he’s relieved Davis is jailed and off the street.
