Raymond Durham, 60, has been found *Not Competent* to stand trial in the shootings of two Detroit police officers.

The shootings of two Detroit police officers took place on March 15. Another review will take place on August 7.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Durham in the shootings of the two officers. Both officers survived the shootings and are recovering at home and have a long road to recovery.

Durham was charged with two counts of Assault with Intent to Murder, two counts of Resisting and Obstructing the Police Causing Serious Impairment, one count of Felon in Possession of a Firearm and five counts of Felony Firearm. 


He was arraigned in on the charges while in the hospital.

Durham is also the prime suspect in the murder of Wayne State Police Officer Sgt. Collin Rose.

DNA evidence linked the suspect involved in the shooting of two Detroit police officers to the murder Sgt. Rose.

The brother of police shooting suspect, Raymond Durham, says his 60-year-old brother is not a violent person but that he's had mental health issues for decades.

Emory Durham says his brother began having problems shortly after a workplace accident in the 1970s.

A large piece of steel hit a young Raymond Durham in the head and Emory Durham says his brother has never been the same since then.

Emory says their parents, both now deceased, tried to have Raymond institutionalized, but it never happened because Raymond would never consent.
