Update from Ann Arbor Police Department

Archived News Release: December 12, 2014 - ​The purpose of this media release is to provide the names of the Ann Arbor Police officers involved in the shooting death of Aura Rosser. The Michigan State Police investigation into this incident​ is still progressing. I have been in contact with the commander of the unit conducting the investigation, D/F/Lt. Sean Furlong. I have been advised that although the final report has not been submitted to the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office, the release of the officers’ names would not impact the investigation at this point.

Officer Dave Ried was the officer who discharged his firearm in this incident. Officer Ried has been an officer with the Ann Arbor Police Department for 15 years. During that time, he has been an excellent officer who has earned my confidence by routinely demonstrating sound judgment and professionalism.

Officer Mark Raab, a 15 year veteran of the Ann Arbor Police Department, was the other officer on scene at the time of this incident.

No additional information regarding the case will be released until it is reviewed by the ​Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s office and a final disposition is announced.

Chief John Seto​
