A Detroit police officer who was shot in the head while responding to a domestic violence call has died, according to department officials.
Officer Glenn Doss Jr., a two year veteran, had been in critical condition since Wednesday, when he was shot in the head and chest while responding to the incident.
His partner rushed him to the hospital.
“He fought a good fight, he is truly what we call one of Detroit’s finest,” said police chief James Craig. He is what we call an American hero. He did what we expect each and every officer to do, to go out and serve this community with distinction and honor and he did that.”
The suspect Decharlos Brooks barricaded himself in his home but was arrested after officers fired tear gas.
Brooks is facing several charges including assault with intent to murder.
Doss leaves behind a 9-month-old son and a girlfriend of nine years
