DETROIT (WWJ)– Funeral services are being held Friday for a Detroit Police officer hit by a car while directing traffic in Greektown  earlier this month.

Forty year-old Officer Charles Armour was struck June 5 and died last Saturday. The funeral began at 10 a.m. at Greater Grace Temple in Detroit.

Friends, family and fellow officers paid their respects during Thursday’s visitation at the Swanson Funeral Home in Detroit. Taylor Police Lt. Robert Graham wanted to honor a “brother in blue” after his department lost two officers recently.

A Buffalo, New York, man, Saddam Mohsin, is jailed in connection with Officer Armour’s death.

He is facing a charge of assault with intent to murder but the Wayne County prosecutor is considering raising the charge to murder.

    This is no way for a person to lose their life, an unjust reward for helping motorists. This incident strongly says how poor many Michigan drivers are. I see drivng fanatics on metro Detroit highways moving at excessive speeds, followng too close and performing careless maneuvers.

    Michigan drivers need to reduce the adrenal hysteria and show caution and courtesy on the roads. Reckless driving kills, witness Officer Armour whose voice has been silenced.
