Detroit Businesses Raise Funds For Fallen Officer

DETROIT (WWJ) – Businesses in Detroit are raising funds for the family of an officer who died from injuries he received after being hit by a wrong way driver last week in Greektown.

WWJ’s Mike Campbell spoke with several business owners in Greektown.

“I spoke to his and I asked if there was anything that could be done for him, I am very willing, and I think all the Greektown would be willing to do so too,” said one Greektown business owner.

Forty-year-old officer Charles Armour died Saturday night. He had been patrolling the streets of Greektown last Sunday when police say Saddam Mohsin of New York struck him with his car.

As of now, Mohsin is facing charges including assault with intent to commit murder and reckless driving.  However, officials are seeking additional charges in the case.
