Davis police officer shot and killed

Davis, Calif., police officer dies following evening shooting; suspect found dead Police Officer Natalie Corona, on force only two weeks, shot dead in Davis, California

From his vantage point, across the street, Kingston said he saw the gunman shoot at a firetruck and reload expertly.

Corona was shot and killed Thursday night, becoming the second officer killed in the line of duty in California in the past two and a half weeks.

Two young female police officers were fatally shot in uniform this week.

The suspect later was found dead, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Davis police confirmed.

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. She's the daughter of a cop and was on the job for only a few weeks.

Corona's dad was a veteran of the nearby Colusa County Sheriff's Department.

"She was a rising star in the department", Pytel said.

Once police surrounded the home, he came out.

Christian Pascual, one of the drivers involved in the three-vehicle crash that Corona was responding to, says the gunman fired from behind him and then walked off appearing to shoot at others at random.

Lyssa Nicole, who trained Corona at the police academy, said the officer loved helping and protecting people.

Following the shooting, officers launched a manhunt for the gunman in downtown Davis.

His motive remains unknown, and Pytel said he did not know whether the outside investigators who are leading the homicide investigation have obtained information that would explain his assault on an officer.

After her initial tweet, Ms Qunun posted almost non-stop for five hours, saying she had been abused and threatened by her family. But on Tuesday, the Thai immigration office released a video clip of its officials meeting Saudi diplomats to discuss the case.

Police work was her calling and Corona was the city's first hire under a recruitment program that paid her college tuition. "22 years old. She'd only been on the force for five months".

Corona graduated from the Sacramento Police Department's training academy in July (left).

The suspect was later found dead in a house near the shooting.

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

Davis Police Department officials say Officer Natalie Corona was shot after responding to a traffic accident Thursday evening in the community west of Sacramento.

Inside the department, Corona's co-workers spent the day sharing their memories of her.

She was taken to UC Davis Medical Center, the newspaper added. The road in front of the police station is named for him.

"Today, as we deal with the pain and anger we are feeling about the awful loss of such a young, promising public servant, we should all focus on supporting Natalie's family, her colleagues, and our whole community, including Arbuckle, where Natalie grew up, said Assemblywoman Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, whose district includes southern Colusa County". She completed her training just before Christmas and became a full-time officer. He has not been identified.

"Jennifer and I are terribly saddened to learn of the death of Officer Corona".

The shooting happened on a street lined with mature trees and bordered by churches on both sides.

After the shooting, the gunman ran toward a rental home he shared with a roommate where he gave no hint about the rampage he had just conducted outside, Pytel said.
