Davis police officer killed Thursday night

The shooter who killed Officer Natalie Corona, 22 in this college town on Thursday fired multiple times at the rookie cop and almost injured other bystanders, according to police. Police have not yet released the man's name. She recently completed the field training program and was on her own for the past 2 weeks.

Natalie Corona, 22, was the second female rookie police officer to be shot dead in the last two days. "She has absolutely wonderful parents, and incredible sisters".

Late Thursday night, officers surrounded a home on 5th Street, calling for someone inside to come out.

Corona, 22, was fatally shot by a gunman who approached on a bicycle and then continued firing shots at a variety of targets before eventually killing himself as police followed him to his home. "The officer sustained a bullet wound and was rushed to the UC Davis Medical Center".

Corona was the first officer to arrive at the scene when she was shot, officials said.

Davis police said Officer Natalie Corona was shot after responding to a triple-traffic collision about 6:45 p.m. Thursday in the community west of Sacramento, in the area of Fifth and C streets near downtown.

She was sworn into the department on August 2 and her father pinned her badge, according to the Williams Pioneer. Proud father Merced Corona pinned a badge on his daughter at academy graduation, the Williams Pioneer Review newspaper reported.

Davis Police Chief Darren Pyte said she was a rising star in his department.

"I gave her my license and she was just about to give it to me", Pascual said.

He said Corona was "just full, full of life and full of energy, and just an absolute pleasure to be around". "And I've heard her described by our officers tonight as our daughter and our friend and our sister that we all wanted". Police have not announced a possible motive for the carnage. "We have to reserve some information in order to keep us safe".

Family members and fellow officers say Corona was very passionate about law enforcement.

"We know you're inside".

"I was sitting on my couch last night and I heard the sirens go by and I thought, this is Davis, it's a minor deal", he said. "Come outside with your hands up".

There will be a candlelight vigil for Corona in Central Park in Davis at 6 p.m. on January 12. First responders were immediately on scene and attempted life saving measures.

From his vantage point, across the street, Kingston said he saw the gunman shoot at a firetruck and reload expertly. "We join all Californians in mourning the loss of this courageous officer and extend our deepest condolences to Officer Corona's family, friends, and co-workers".

In an announcement from the Associated Students of UC Davis, Senator Ricky Zapardiel on his Facebook page, the officer who was shot in downtown Davis has died. Law-enforcement vehicles also were seen stationed at major intersections throughout the city.

He was described as a white man in his 20s with an average build, wearing a baseball cap, a black jacket, blue or tan jeans and black tactical boots. It was also unclear whether the other involved motorists had been questioned.
