  • Davis, Calif., police officer dies following evening shooting; suspect found dead

On Friday morning, Sacramento County Sheriff's Department crime scene investigators told KTVU that the suspect hit several vehicles including the patrol auto three times, a fire truck four times and several cars on the street.

Family and friends shared hugs and tears Friday as they gathered at the family home of Officer Natalie Corona in Arbuckle.

Pytel said the gunman left and went to his apartment nearby. He shot himself in the head following an armed standoff with police.

The man's name was not released.

Pascual says he had handed over his license to Davis police officer Natalie Corona when he heard the gunshots. Corona died at the hospital.

He says the family is not angry. Police have not said anyone other than the officer was shot.

Shaun Kingston said he saw the gunman shoot at a firetruck and reload expertly.

Corona is the second, 22-year-old female police officer killed this week.

Eventually, officers found the suspect dead inside the home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

She graduated from the police academy this past July, and her proud father, Colusa County Supervisor Merced Corona, a retired sergeant with the Colusa County Sheriff's Office, pinned her badge to her uniform on August 2.

Cpl. Ronil Singh, 33, of the Newman Police Department was shot to death December 26 after he stopped a suspected drunk driver.

"She loved being around everybody in the department".

On Jan. 5, a police officer in Utah was shot dead while trying to arrest a risky fugitive.

She is expected to receive the remaining money left on her contract, which is reportedly in the neighborhood of $30 million. Kelly said it was acceptable when she was a kid to don black face "as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character".

'The Davis Police Department has not lost an officer in well over 50 years.

"At one point he did come out", Pytel said.

He pinned his daughter's badge on her at the academy graduation just six months ago. She describes the city, a 15-mile drive west of Sacramento, as a "progressive, safe, family-oriented university community".

Officials announced early Friday he had been found dead inside.

Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered flags at the state Capitol to be flown at half-staff.

It wasn't immediately clear if the shooter was in the traffic accident or what the motive was. "She loved being around everybody in the department, and she just worked like you can't believe".

Corona, the 22-year-old daughter of a retired sheriff's deputy who'd only been on the job a few weeks, was rushed to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, where she later died.

The gunman left behind a backpack that helped police track him to the house. She grew up in a tight-knit family in the Northern California town of Arbuckle. The Sacramento Sheriff's Department will be handling the investigation.

Christian Pascual, 25, was on his way to the University of California, Davis to visit friends when a vehicle hit the 1996 Infiniti he was driving, causing Pascual to spin out of control and plow into another auto at around 7 p.m., Pascual told The Sacramento Bee. She just recently completed training and had only been on the streets by herself for a couple of weeks before the tragic incident. He has not been identified.

The chief called the officer's death "an absolutely devastating loss".

Police Officer Natalie Corona, the rookie cop who was killed in the line of duty Thursday night in Davis, Calif., was the victim of an "ambush"-style attack, authorities said". Police said the shooting happened in the area of Fifth and C streets near downtown.

Following the shooting, police issued a citywide shelter in place order as officers spent hours scouring the city in search of the suspect.

"She arrested an individual the other day and she came home and said, 'you know dad, I had to take this person's bag of cereal and that was all they had to eat.' So, I put five dollars in his bag and told him that was going to be for when he got out, '" Jose said.
