LANSING, MI (WNEM) -

Gov. Rick Snyder has ordered flags be lowered to half-staff on Monday, Nov. 7 in honor of a Detroit police officer who was killed in a hit-and-run.

Myron Jarrett died Friday, Oct. 28 after being struck by a vehicle while on duty. A man was arrested early Saturday in connection with the deadly crash and police spoke with a woman who they believe was a passenger in the van.

No charges have been announced.  

“I send my most heartfelt condolences to Myron’s family, friends, and community. He will be forever honored for his dedication to the people of Detroit and our state,” Snyder said.

Jarrett was helping with the investigation of a traffic accident when he was struck by the van. Police said he was thrown 30 feet.

The 40-year-old officer was a married father of four. He had been with the Detroit Police Department for eight years.

Flags should return to full staff on Tuesday, Nov. 8.
