DETROIT — The Latest on Detroit man charged in shooting death of Wayne State University police officer (all times local):
A Detroit judge has ordered a mental evaluation for a Detroit man charged in last year’s fatal shooting of a Wayne State University police officer.
First-degree murder and other charges were announced Thursday against Durham in the Nov. 22 slaying of officer Collin Rose, who was investigating possible thefts from cars near the Wayne State campus.
Durham became a suspect in Rose’s death after two Detroit officers were wounded during a confrontation in March. He was charged with attempted murder in the March shootings, but later found incompetent to stand trial.
A competency hearing was held Thursday in those shootings, and Durham for the second time was found incompetent to stand trial.
Authorities have charged a 60-year-old man with first-degree murder in the slaying of a Wayne State University police officer near the campus in Detroit last November.
Raymond Durham was accused Thursday of shooting Collin Rose in the head on Nov. 22 as the officer was investigating possible thefts of navigation systems from cars. Rose died the next day. Detroit Police Chief James Craig had said DNA evidence linked Durham to the shooting and Durham was named the prime suspect in that case.
Durham was charged in March with attempted murder in the wounding of two Detroit police officers who stopped him. In May, Durham was found incompetent to stand trial in those shootings, which were not related to the slaying of Rose.
