Murder Charges Filed In Collin Rose Shooting
The Detroit Free Press reports that in Wayne County Court Thursday, 61-year-old Raymond Durham was charged with first degree murder, murder of a peace officer, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, in the death of Sgt. Collin Rose. Police say that in November 2016, Rose had been investigating reports of theft near WSU campus, when he approached Durham, who was on a bike. That’s when Durham allegedly pulled out a gun and shot the Richland native in the head.
Durham was initially named a suspect in Rose’s death after he was arrested for shooting at two police officers in March; allegedly DNA evidence ties him to the scene. However, Durham has been twice found incompetent to stand trial in the March incident. On Thursday, a competency exam was scheduled in the case of Rose’s murder.
He’s set to appear back in court in November.
