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

Police have not announced a possible motive for the carnage. No words of gratitude can express the ultimate sacrifice of Officer Corona.

Pytel described the 60-person agency as "close-knit", and said a chaplain will be available to console grieving officers and staff. He shot himself in the head following an armed standoff with police.

The man's name was not released.

Corona began as a part-time employee in the Davis Police Department in 2016.

Pytel declined to release the name of the gunman, noting that the attacker's only previous contact with the department came a year ago when he was the victim of a crime that the chief said was "nothing that was extraordinary at all", the Sacramento Bee reported.

The elder Corona is a retired Colusa County sheriff's sergeant who was elected to the Board of Supervisors last November.

Corona died after being shot in the city's downtown district.

Now, with her gone, her father says his family has no hate for the man who pulled the trigger. "There are a limited number of police officers but mutual aid has been called in".

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

Natalie Corona, 22, was the second female rookie police officer to be shot dead in the last two days. "The suspect basically just opened up fire" at Corona, who was standing in the street between two of the crashed cars.

As Corona was treated for multiple gunshot wounds including one to her neck, the suspect fled the scene, heading south on C Street toward Third Street and apparently circling the block before returning to his house at 501 E St.

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.

He said his daughter should be remembered for her caring heart.

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

Gomez says Corona talked often about how much she loved her job.

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

O'Brien said officers go through extensive training to try and prevent these happenings.

He said the shots came from directly behind him, with the gunman firing over his right shoulder so close to his ear that he was suffering from hearing loss Friday morning.

No one else was injured in the barrage, police said.

They said it happened in downtown Davis and a suspect is still outstanding.

He said that he ducked and when he looked up, Corona was on the ground and the shooter was "shooting at what looked like random people to me". "She would come home, and she would be beaming", said Natalie's father, Jose Merced Corona. "She knew that was a possibility, and I think she embraced that". According to Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel, Corona completed the police academy in July 2018 and was promoted to police officer.

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

"This is just an absolutely devastating loss to the police department", Pytel said.
