Vigil planned in memory of slain Detroit police officer

Posted: Updated:

  DETROIT (AP) -- Residents of a Detroit neighborhood are gathering in the memory of a campus police officer who was killed in the line of duty.
   Organizers say residents in the Woodbridge area plan a candlelight vigil and procession Saturday evening for Wayne State University police officer Collin Rose, who was shot in the head Tuesday and died the next day.
   A release says the event, which starts at Scripps Park, aims to recognize Rose's contribution to "making our neighborhood safer." Organizers say they also will discuss plans to create a memorial.
   Authorities say Rose was investigating possible thefts of navigation systems from vehicles near the Wayne State campus. He was shot as he tried to arrest DeAngelo Davis, who was arraigned Friday on murder and gun charges.
