DETROIT (WXYZ) — Thursday, January 24th marks the one year anniversary that Detroit Police Officer Glenn Doss Jr. was shot in the head while responding to a domestic violence call.

Now his father wants to make sure that his sacrifice is never forgotten.

“My prayer and my goal is I hope that the citizens of Detroit never forget my son’s name, never forget his sacrifice and I just want do everything that's in my power help spreed the word,” said Glenn Doss Sr., who is also a Detroit Police Officer.

Doss Jr. was responding to a domestic violence call on a house on McDougall near Palmer on Detroit’s east side. Investigators say Decharlos Brooks, who was involved in the initial call to 911, shot Doss Jr. in the head once he got out of his patrol car.

Doss Jr. is the father of a now two-year-old son.

“It’s beautiful to see my grandson grow up because he looks so much like his dad,” said Doss Sr.

Jury selection for the trial against Brooks is scheduled to begin on February 25th.
