Yet again another police officer has been senselessly murdered. Every day they put on the uniform they know there is a chance they wont be coming home. Every day they are berated mocked and criticized. An officer gave her life only after weeks on the job while responding to a three car collision. The Davis officer who had just graduated the academy and was hailed as a rising star in the department.
FoxNews reports that a police officer in Davis, Calif., was fatally shot Thursday night while responding to a traffic accident, prompting a massive manhunt for the gunman, who later killed himself, authorities said.
Natalie Corona, 22, was pronounced dead at UC Davis Medical Center. She was responding to a three-car crash at around 6:45 p.m.
Davis Police confirmed early Friday morning that the shooter was found dead inside a home with what appeared to be a self-inflicited gunshot wound.
Corona, who began as a community service officer in 2016, had graduated from the police academy in July. She had just completed her field training before Christmas and had been out on her own for a couple of weeks, Pytel said.
“She was a rising star in the department,” Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel said at a press conference. “She just worked like you can’t believe.”
Firefighters performed life-saving measures at the scene and Corona was rushed to a nearby hospital, Pytel said. It was unclear whether she was targeted or caught up in a crossfire.
The ongoing investigation was turned over…
The shooter has been found, deceased, inside a home near 5th and E St in Davis with what appears to be a self inflicted gunshot wound.
