Charges dropped against man in Wayne State University officer's shooting death

DETROIT -- Murder charges have been dropped against a man in the killing of a Detroit college police officer who was shot in the head last month.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said Wednesday that charges have been dropped. The 31-year-old Detroit man was accused of shooting Wayne State University Officer Collin Rose on Nov. 22. The man had been jailed without bond since his arrest that night. He faced charges of first-degree murder and murder of a police officer.

Worthy said during a brief conference Wednesday he’s no longer a suspect.

Wayne State employs about 65 officers. The 29-year-old Rose died a day after the shooting and was posthumously promoted to sergeant. He is the only Wayne State officer to have been killed in the line of duty.
