It has been more than three months since Wayne State University police officer Collin Rose was shot and killed while on duty in Detroit's Woodbridge neighborhood

Detroit police officers, officers from other agencies as well as representatives from Crime Stoppers all hit the streets of southwest Detroit to let people know the search for a cop killer is continuing.

Like beat cops, they walked West Vernor Avenue, talking with people on the street and also stopping into businesses to post English or Spanish language versions of an informational flyer. Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $25,500 for information that leads to an arrest in the case.

Rose, 29, was murdered on Nov. 22, 2016. He stopped to investigate a man on a blue mountain bike when he was shot in the head. The incident took place at Brainard and Lincoln near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Trumbull Avenue. 

If you have tips or information that could help police solve this case, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP (1-800-773-2587). You can remain anonymous.
