Video reportedly showed the Detroit man accused in the shooting death of a Wayne State University police officer at a different location at the time of the incident, forcing prosecutors to drop murder charges against him.
DeAngelo Davis, 31, had been charged in the shooting of Wayne State University Officer Collin Rose on Nov. 22. Davis was jailed without bond after his arrest that night. He faced charges of first-degree murder and murder of a police officer.

Davis became a suspect in Rose’s shooting almost immediately. In a statement after he was charged, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said Davis was riding a bicycle when Rose stopped him.
The newly-emerged video showed Davis at an undisclosed business during the shooting, sources told WDIV.
Wayne State employs about 65 officers.
Rose, 29, died a day after the shooting and was posthumously promoted to sergeant. He was the only Wayne State officer killed in the line of duty.
