ST. CLAIR SHORES, MI (AP) -

Detroit's police chief says these are "troubling times" for the city with the latest officer slain in the line of duty and others being targeted.

Chief James Craig attended Thursday's funeral of Wayne State University police canine Officer Collin Rose at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in suburban St. Clair Shores.
 

It was the third funeral for a Detroit police officer killed in the line of duty since September.

Before entering the church, Craig said he's "never seen a time like this. ... I want the public to know the dangers that our heroes are facing."

No officers were hurt in two shootings targeting police within 24 hours of Rose's funeral.

Rose was shot in the head Nov. 22 as he tried to make an arrest.
