Raymond Durham, 61, has been charged for the murder of Wayne State Police Sgt. Collin Rose, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said during a press conference on Aug. 3.

During the press conference, which was broadcasted on Facebook Live by the Detroit Police Department, Worthy said Durham was charged with one count of first degree premeditated murder, one count of murder of a peace officer, one count of possession of a firearm by a felon and two counts of felony firearm.

Durham was arrested on March 15 as a person of interest in the shooting of DPD officers on Ash and Tillman.

Rose was fatally shot on Lincoln and Brainard Street on Nov. 22, 2016. The gun, a .38 caliber revolver, was the same of weapon used in both shootings.

“This will allow a sense of recovery for the family, for officers of this department and for the Wayne State community at large,” WSU Police Chief Anthony Holt said. “This a solemn time, not one of celebration, as the department is still going through recovery, but it does provide some comfort to see that this process is moving forward.”

The WSU Police Department, the Detroit Police Department, the Michigan State Police, the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the ATF, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, the Detroit Transit Authority Department and the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office were all a part of the task force that led to Durham’s charge.  

“It has taken eight months of hard, diligent, determined work to bring us here today to bring some charges,” Worthy said.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig thanked two DPD officers for pursuing Durham under gunfire, who are both still recovering from their injuries.

“I am hopeful that the charges being brought against Mr. Durham will send a strong message of deterrence to those who may want to bring harm to our officers,” Craig said. “It’s just been one too many here in this great city of our officers being attacked.”

Durham is expected to be arraigned today.
