DETROIT (AP) - The Latest on charges in the shooting of two Detroit police officers (all times local):

1:15 p.m.

A man has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of two Detroit police officers and also identified as the "prime suspect" in the fatal shooting of another officer in November.

Police Chief James Craig says DNA links Raymond Durham to Sgt. Collin Rose, who was killed while on patrol for the Wayne State University police department. He declined to release more details.

Less than an hour later Friday, prosecutors announced charges against the 60-year-old Durham in the shooting of two officers Wednesday night. Their injuries aren't life-threatening, although one was shot in the neck.

Durham was arraigned in a hospital room where he's recovering from a gunshot wound. The Associated Press doesn't know if he has a lawyer to comment on the charges.

Police say a man arrested in the shootings of two Detroit police officers is now a "prime suspect" in the death of a college officer.

Detroit Chief James Craig says DNA evidence links the man to Sgt. Collin Rose, who was fatally shot in November while on patrol for the Wayne State University police department.

Craig calls it a "first step." He declined to release any other details Friday.

Meanwhile, two Detroit officers shot Wednesday night are recovering from their injuries. The injuries are not life-threatening, although one officer was shot in the neck. A suspect was arrested that same night and soon could face charges.
