Flags in Michigan and across the country will be lowered to half-staff today in honor of slain Detroit Police Officer Glenn Doss, Jr.

The 25-year-old officer was shot in the line of duty Wednesday night while responding to a domestic violence complaint on Detroit’s east side. He died of his injuries Sunday, Jan. 28.

Doss served two years with the Detroit Police Department.  He leaves behind a 9-month-old baby, and his father, Glenn Doss, Sr., is currently an active DPD officer.

A service in his honor will be held today at 11 a.m. at Greater Grace Church, 23500 W. Seven Mile Road in Detroit.

Decharlos Brooks faces first-degree murder charges and murder of a peace officer.
