DETROIT (FOX NEWS) — Detroit Police Officer Glenn Doss Jr. died Sunday from injuries he sustained in a shooting last week.

The 25-year-old Doss, along with other officers, had responded to a domestic violence call on Wednesday night when he was shot in the head.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 43-year-old Decharlos Brooks was arraigned Saturday on eight counts of assault with intent to murder, resisting and obstructing and carrying a dangerous weapon.

Officer Glenn Doss was shot in the head Wednesday while sitting in the passenger seat of a patrol car. Doss’ partner rushed him to a hospital where he was listed in critical condition.

A handgun also was pointed at other officers before Brooks ran inside a house. He later was removed from the home by officers and arrested.

Brooks is jailed. He faces a Feb. 6 probable cause conference

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family with funeral costs.

Meantime, a vigil is planned for Doss Monday.
