The Detroit police officer, who was shot near Wayne State University on Tuesday, died.

Collin Rose, Wayne State University officer, died from a gunshot wound, the university's president announced on Wednesday.

"This is a tragedy felt by all of us. Collin and his family and friends, his fiancee, and our campus and community," University President M. Roy Wilson said.

Gov. Rick Snyder released the following statement:

"I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Officer Collin Rose and my thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and coworkers during this tragic time. Officer Rose was well-respected by fellow law enforcement officers and the community for his work and his commitment to serving others. May he rest in peace knowing that Michiganders are collectively mourning his loss and that we will support his family, friends and colleagues to the best of our ability while they grieve."
