DETROIT (WWJ) Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy is holding a press conference Wednesday morning with an update to the case of Collin Rose, the 29-year-old shot in the head by a man he had stopped near campus.
DeAngelo Davis, 31, faces several charges, including first degree murder in connection with the death just before Thanksgiving.
But numerous reports indicate there just isn’t enough evidence to continue with those charges against the current suspect — a man investigators had said was known to police.
The announcement — which is not open to the public — will include Detroit Police Chief James Craig and Wayne State University Police Chief Anthony Holt.
Rose’s wake and funeral were attended by hundreds of metro Detroiters, including a cadre of K-9 officers.
The senseless death of a man described as respected and admired drew national attention; He’s the only Wayne State cop killed in the line of duty.
Davis was arrested shortly after the incident. In a statement, Worthy said Davis was riding a bicycle when Rose stopped him. The officer was shot shortly after requesting help from other officers.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Rose was investigating possible thefts of navigation systems from vehicles when he was shot.
