A Wayne State University cop died after being shot in the head

Officer Rose has died of the injuries he sustained when he was shot in the line of duty. 

UPDATE 1:38 p.m. EST:

Officer Rose has been released from surgery.  Authorities said they're interrogating a man about the attack, reports CBS News

A Wayne State University officer was shot Tuesday a few blocks southwest of the school, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department said. 

The shooting happened around 6:45 p.m. EST and comes just after four other recent incidents where officers were shot. 

Wayne State University identified the police officer as Collin Rose. Rose, 29, is a K-9 officer and was hired by the Wayne State police department in March 2011.

The Detroit Free Press reported that Rose was rushed to Detroit Receiving hospital.  A suspect has been arrested.

Rose was  patrolling an area when he stopped to investigate a man, Wayne State police chief Anthony Holt said.  A woman who said she witnessed the shooting  said she'd called 911 about a troublesome man on a bike but it was unclear if he was responding to that call.

The back-up officer enroute to the scene found the wounded officer on the ground, suffering from at least one serious gunshot wound, Holt said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
