The incident happened at around 6:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday when Officer Rose sent out a radio message to inform dispatch that he was investigating the possible theft of navigation systems from vehicles and that he was about to speak to someone on a bike.

When officers arrived at the scene a short time later, Officer Rose was found injured on the ground. He was rushed to Detroit Receiving Hospital, where he was initially listed in a "very grave" condition and on life support. He passed away just before 6 p.m. ET on Wednesday while surrounded by family, friends and colleagues.

"This is a tragedy felt by all of us -- Collin and his family and friends, his fiancée, and our campus and community," Wayne State University President M. Roy Wilson said in a statement. "Please keep Collin and his fiancée and family in your thoughts and prayers."

Collin is the first Wayne State University police officer to be killed in the line of duty.

An exact motive for the shooting is not yet known, though authorities have said that they do not believe Rose was specifically targeted for working as a police officer. A person of interest - 31-year-old Deangelo Davis - remains in custody but no charges were filed as of Wednesday evening.
