Photo of suspect in Wayne State officer shooting

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Police Chief James Craig has defended the decision to arrest and charge then drop charges against a man in the fatal shooting of a college police officer.

Craig told reporters Thursday that police and prosecutors had “probable cause” to arrest and charge DeAngelo Davis with murder in the November slaying of Wayne State University officer Collin Rose. Craig says Davis was released Wednesday after the investigation “led us in a different direction.”

Police have released grainy videos of an “unknown suspect” riding a bicycle just before the slaying and running away after. Craig says Davis also was in the area and both he and the new suspect “have connections” to the bike, but Craig didn’t elaborate.

This item has been corrected to show that Craig says it was Davis, not Rose, who was also in the area and is somehow connected to the bicycle.
