DETROIT — A judge has ordered a mental competency examination for a 43-year-old man charged in the fatal shooting of a Detroit police officer.
Decharlos Brooks was arraigned Tuesday on first-degree murder and murder of a peace officer charges.
WDIV-TV reports that Brooks’ defense attorney requested the competency exam. A hearing is scheduled April 6.
Glenn Doss was in a patrol car when he was shot in the head Jan. 24 while responding with his partner to a domestic violence complaint on Detroit’s eastside. The 25-year-old Doss died several days later at a hospital.
Police have said that Brooks fired shots at police vehicles.
