The ex-convict accused of shooting a 29-year-old Michigan police officer in the head was charged with first-degree murder on Friday.

Authorities say Deangelo Davis was riding a bicycle in Detroit when he was stopped by Wayne State University Officer Collin Rose on Tuesday. Officer Rose was shot shortly after requesting help from other officers. He died from his injuries the following day.

The 31-year-old Davis fled the scene, but was taken into custody a few blocks away. In addition to murder, he is charged with murder of a police officer and gun crimes.

“Universally, Officer Rose was respected, admired, and one that had an excellent work ethic,” prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a news release, according to the Detroit Free Press.
