  • Police Officer Natalie Corona of Arbuckle gunned down

The community is mourning the loss of police officer and Arbuckle resident Natalie Corona, who was shot and killed on Thursday while on duty with the Davis Police Department.

Firefighters at a nearby station provided immediate medical help before Corona was rushed to the UC Davis Medical Center.

Corona was a rookie officer who joined the Davis Police Department in 2016 as a community service officer and completed her field training just last month. Her father, Merced Corona, served 26 years as a Colusa County Sheriff's deputy, the Beereported.

He said there was a time that just before going to the academy, the department ran out of funding for her paid position, and she still came in and volunteered without pay and put in full-time hours until she ended up going to the police academy.

Eventually, officers found the suspect dead inside the home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

"She was a rising star in the department", Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel said at a press conference Thursday night.

CBS13 says it happened after the officer responded to a three-car crash in downtown Davis.

Corona was one of six new officers sworn into the department on August 2.

Corona, 22, had only been on the job a few weeks before her life was cut short.

Corona wore her love for the police on her sleeve, as evidenced by her Facebook profile picture showing her posing in a floor-length blue gown while holding an American flag with a blue line honoring law enforcement.

There, he met with a roommate, "and really didn't show any signs that he had just been involved in this incident", Pytel said.

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

The vigil for Officer Natalie Corona is Saturday, Jan. 12 at 6 p.m.in downtown Davis' Central Park.

"And now she's become yet another officer killed in the line of duty It's sickening".

"I've heard her described by our officers tonight as our daughter, our friend, and just a sister that we all wanted".

One of the drivers in the crash, Christian Pascual, 25, says the shooter fired from behind him and he didn't believe it was someone involved in the crash.

"And I can tell you I have never seen anybody who's worked harder in a part-time capacity and be more motivated to a police officer than Natalie".

At one point, a witness alerted police to a backpack the gunman had dropped near the shooting scene, which enabled authorities to learn the suspect's name and where he lived.

"It appears that he pushed a couch in front of the door and shortly after that officers reported hearing a gunshot coming from inside the residence", Pytel said. Now, the community is comforting her family in this time of grief. "She felt very strong about that and about protecting the people behind the badge".

Corona, a rookie with the Davis Police Department, shot and killed Thursday while responding to a multi-vehicle crash in the college town of Davis in Northern California.

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

Her death follows the killing of a central California officer on December 26 during a traffic stop.

Gustavo Arriaga Perez, also 33, was charged with the murder. That killing rekindled a debate over California's sanctuary law that limits cooperation by local officials with federal immigration authorities.
