DETROIT, MI – Detroit Police Officer Glenn Doss died from gunshot wounds at Detroit Receiving Hospital at approximately 2:00 pm on Sunday January 28th 2018 after being shot four days earlier.
He was shot Wednesday on the city’s east side. The shooting happened around 10:45 p.m. Wednesday January 24th, 2018, at a house located at 5527 McDougall. Police had received a call about a man assaulting his wife, and another woman called to say a man might have fired gunshots.
Doss was in the passenger seat of his squad car when he was shot two times. Once in the head and one time in the chest. The suspected gunman was identified as Decharlos Brooks.
The wounded officer was transported to a Detroit Receiving Hospital where he received treatment until he passed away this afternoon.
It is alleged that after shooting Detroit Police Officer Glenn Doss, Brooks stood pointing his handgun at other officers at the scene. Shortly thereafter Brooks barricaded himself inside his house until the DPD Special Response Team were able to remove him from the house and place him under arrest.
He has been charged with: eight counts of Assault with Intent to Murder; seven counts of Resisting and Obstructing; one count of Carrying a Dangerous Weapon and 17 counts of Felony Firearm. It is expected that those charges will be amended.
Officer Glenn Doss had been on the force for about two years. He has a 9-month-old son.
