AUGUSTA, Mich. (WOOD) — A Kalamazoo County church will host a memorial this week for a Wayne State University officer killed in the line of duty last week.
Officer Collin Rose grew up in the area; he graduated from Gull Lake High School in 2006.
Rose took his first job in law enforcement with the Richland Police Department in late 2010. Within a year, he was off to Wayne County.
Rose died Nov. 23, nearly 24 hours after he was shot in the head while trying to arrest DeAngelo Davis for a series of thefts in the area. Davis was arraigned Friday on murder and gun charges.
Tuesday night, Wayne State University held a candlelight vigil for Rose. The tribute included a moment of silence at 6:30 p.m. – the approximate time the 29-year-old officer was shot.
A visitation is scheduled from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday at Ford Field. A second smaller visitation and funeral Mass are planned Thursday morning at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in St. Clair Shores.
St. Ann Catholic Church in Augusta will hold a memorial Mass for Rose Friday at 11 a.m. The service will be open to police, public safety officers and the public. The church is located at 12648 E. D. Ave.
