A Detroit man has been charged in connection to the fatal shooting of a Wayne State University police officer in 2016, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced today at a news conference at the university police headquarters.

Sgt. Collin Rose conducted a traffic investigation of Raymond Durham, 60, on Nov. 22, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. in the area of Lincoln and Brainard Streets in Detroit, and shortly after Rose called for back up, it is alleged that Durham, who was riding a bicycle, shot Rose in the head and fled on foot, according to a news release from the prosecutor's office.

Rose died from the wound the next day.

"We lost a valuable member of our department, we lost a very young officer with a great future in him," said Wayne State University police chief Anthony Holt, at the news conference.

The prosecutor's office is charging Durham with one count each of first-degree premeditated murder; murder of a peace officer; possession of a firearm by a felon; and two counts of felony firearm.

Durham could face life without parole on both the premeditated murder and murder of a peace officer charges, the Detroit Free Press.

If the death penalty will make these monsters THINK before they shoot a police Officer, then it should be re-instated. We simply cannot have bright, young Police Officers lives taken like Sgt.Rose. We pray for the repose of his soul and for that of his family. God bless him and all law enforcement Officers. We are that "thin blue line" between the law and decency and anarchy.
