The Detroit Police Department said on Wednesday that officer Fadi Shukur, who was severely injured in a hit-and-run incident on August 4, died overnight.
Shukur, 30, had been with the department for a year and a half.
Shukur was struck by a car while walking to his patrol vehicle after responding to a crowd control call. The driver of the SUV that hit him, which was estimated to be traveling at 60 or 70 miles an hour, was 19-year-old Jonathan David Cole of Belleville.
Cole turned himself in to police on Aug. 4 and has been charged with second degree murder, reckless driving causing death, and failure to stop at the scene of an accident when at fault resulting in death.
New charges have been filed following Shukur's death, including a murder charge, the Detroit Free Press reports.
