Sergeant Collin Rose succumbed to gunshot wound sustained the previous day while questioning a suspicious person near the university's downtown campus.

Sergeant Rose was in an area that had experienced numerous thefts from vehicles the previous day. He informed dispatchers that he was making contact with a suspicious person in front of 3650 Lincoln Street. During the encounter Sergeant Rose attempted to detain the man but the subject suddenly pulled out a gun and shot him in the head.

The subject fled the scene but was arrested in March 2017 after shooting at three Detroit police officers who were attempting to make contact with him. He was charged with Sergeant Rose's murder in August 2017.

Sergeant Rose had served with the Wayne State University Police Department for 5-1/2 years and served as a canine officer with the agency. He was posthumously promoted to the rank of Sergeant. He had previously served with the Richland Police Department. He is survived by his fiancee.

Sergeant Rose was a member of Police Unity Tour.

Sitting here at work getting ready for the fundraising "season" for the Police Unity Tour. Not a day goes by without you in our thoughts. Every time we (the boys and ladies of the bus) get together you are ALWAYS the topic of conversation. Frank had your seat done in your department colors with your patch and EOW. Nobody sits there but Nikki. Just the way it is.
