Such Sad News: Wayne State University Police Officer Dies After Being Shot in Head

Wayne State University released a statement this evening:

Dear campus community,

I am saddened to report that a short time ago, Wayne State University officer Collin Rose died from the gunshot wound he suffered while working in the line of duty yesterday evening.

This is a tragedy felt by all of us — Collin and his family and friends, his fiancée, and our campus and community.

Please keep Collin and his fiancée and family in your thoughts and prayers. Collin served Wayne State with distinction, and we owe those he left behind our deepest sympathies and our strong support.

Please keep all our police officers in your thoughts as well. Collin is the first and only Wayne State officer ever to fall in the line of duty. Our officers mourn with us, but these dedicated, professional men and women continue to serve us courageously, every day. We can honor Collin’s memory best with our ongoing gratitude and support for all of our officers.

Sincerely,

M Roy Wilson signature

M. Roy Wilson
President
