Governor orders flags lowered for slain Detroit officer
LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has ordered flags to be lowered to honor a Detroit police officer killed in the line of duty.
The governor's office says in a release that U.S. and Michigan flags will be lowered to half-staff Friday on all state buildings and within the state Capitol complex for Wayne State University Police Officer Collin Rose.
He was shot Nov. 22 as he tried to arrest DeAngelo Davis and died the next day. Davis faces murder and gun charges.
A funeral Mass was celebrated Thursday in suburban Detroit. Visitation was held Wednesday at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions.
Snyder says Rose, a canine officer, "dedicated his life to protecting" people and "was well-respected by his colleagues and the communities he served."
