UPDATE: Suspect found dead after shooting, killing Northern California police officer

(UPDATE: Friday; 1:41 a.m.) – According to the Davis Police Department, the suspect has been found dead.

Police say the shooter was found dead inside a home near 5th and E Streets in Davis.

The suspect appears to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Davis Police.

A Davis police officer was shot and killed Thursday and a search for the suspect is underway.

Police say officer Natalie Corona, 22, was taken to the hospital where she later died.

The shooting happened around 7 p.m. near 5th and C streets in downtown Davis. Corona was responding to a three-vehicle crash when she was shot, Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel said.

Police have lifted a shelter in place for the town of Davis, and officers are narrowing their search to the area of 5th and E streets in downtown.

Pytel says Corona started with the Davis Police Department in 2016 as a part-time employee and completed her field training just before Christmas.

Corona had only been working in the field on her own for a couple of weeks before the shooting.

Pytel says the last time the Davis Police department lost an officer was in 1959.
