DETROIT (WWJ) –  A Detroit Police officer who was hit by a car being driven the wrong way near the Greektown Casino last week… has died.

Officer Charles Armour died Sunday, one week after he was run down while walking along Monroe Avenue, at St. Antoine… near the Greektown Casino.

Officer Charles Armour died from injuries he received in the incident.

WWJ spoke with Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee: “…(Officer Armour) leaves behind to mourn; a four-year-old daughter, a father, mother, step-mother and girlfriend,” said Chief Godbee.

“Despite the efforts of Detroit Receiving Hospital personnel, he did not make it through, we are shocked as an agency, not the news any of us expected to hear…we thought he was on his way to recovery,” Godbee said.

Police arrested the driver of the suspect vehicle, 30-year-old Saddam Mohsin of Buffalo, after he started driving the wrong way on Monroe … after allegedly hitting Officer Armour.

Funeral services for the 40-year-old officer, a 16-year veteran of the Detroit Police Department, are pending.

Mohsin was initially charged with assault with intent to kill, but those charges will likely change with the death of Officer Armour, who was 40 years old.
