Rookie cop in Northern California'ambushed at crash scene

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

The family headed over to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, where Corona died.

Corona, who graduated from the Sacramento Police Department's training academy in July, had been shot once and fell to the ground.

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

Davis Police closed the area near 5th and C streets in Davis, Calif., after a police officer was shot on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019.

One of the drivers in the crash, Christian Pascual, 25, said the shooter appeared to have been a bystander who fired from behind him. A Davis Police Department honor guard has been stationed with the fallen officer, who passed away shortly after being transported to the UC Davis Medical Center, and will remain there until she is buried.

Corona who was 22, started with the department in 2016 as a community services officer.

Davis Police Department officials said 22-year-old Officer Natalie Corona was shot after responding to a three-car traffic accident at about 6:45 p.m. Thursday in the community west of Sacramento.

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

There, he met with a roommate, "and really didn't show any signs that he had just been involved in this incident", Pytel said. "And I've heard her described by our officers tonight as our daughter and our friend and our sister that we all wanted".

"It's a tragic loss for us and it's a very tragic loss for the community because she was the officer every city would want", said Davis Police Lt. Paul Doroshov.

"We have a lead at this point, a possible suspect", Doroshov added.

Corona also attracted notice last month on the Davis police's Facebook page after bringing supplies to survivors of the Camp Fire. "We have to reserve some information in order to keep us safe".

Later, officers used spotlights to light up the home's exterior and issued commands for someone inside to come out.

Davis Mayor Brett Lee said, "The entire City Council is grief-stricken and heartbroken at this senseless loss of life". "Come outside with your hands up".

The gunman sprayed bullets at a firetruck, a passing bus and a house, pausing to reload.

Corona is the second officer killed in California in the past two and a half weeks.

Several law enforcement agencies joined in the search for the suspect, who has been described as a white man in his 20s wearing a baseball cap, black jacket, blue or tan jeans and black tactical boots.

Police said that the suspect took his own life inside the home after coming in and out a few times in a bulletproof vest. It was also unclear whether the other involved motorists had been questioned. Police announced that she was shot when responding to a three-car collision outside Sacramento.
