"This clearly to us looks like an ambush", Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel said at a press conference Friday night.

"It's kind of hard to talk about her honestly", said Byron Eby, who went through the academy with Natalie. Ronil Singh, 33, of the Newman Police Department, was shot to death December 26 after he stopped a suspected drunk driver.

The gunman's name was not released.

Corona is the second, 22-year-old female police officer killed this week.

Firefighters performed life-saving measures at the scene and Corona was rushed to a nearby hospital, Pytel said.

He says the family is not angry.

Shaun Kingston said he saw the gunman shoot at a firetruck and reload expertly.

Lyssa Nicole, who trained Corona at the police academy, said the officer loved helping and protecting people. He said as terrified bystanders ran, he saw the shooter calmly walk away before he lost sight of him in the crowd. "The suspect basically just opened up fire" at Corona, who was standing in the street between two of the crashed cars.

Corona's father, Merced Corona, worked in law enforcement for 26 years, and, according to a local report in the Williams Pioneer Review, even had the honor of pinning his daughter's badge last August.

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.

"She was a rising star in the department", Pytel said.

He said the cause of death for the male victim is likely a drug overdose, but he added that it is too early in the investigation. Mike O'Brien, a police captain in Chico, California, said: "Certainly there's potential for additional fatalities".

He would be, for some time at least, UK's best-ever tennis player and the first local in 77 years to win at Wimbledon , in 2013. "But it is still so sad to see him so upset before the Australian Open and obviously hearing he is still playing with pain".


May warns of catastrophe if lawmakers don't back Brexit deal
Mr Corbyn also suggested he would extend Article 50 if a general election was called and he won the keys to Downing Street. Corbyn said Labour would vote against May's deal, and if she lost would start moves to trigger a general election.


Police spent hours trying to coax the suspect out of a home about a block from the shooting scene, using floodlights and commands on loudspeakers for him to emerge with his hands up. He said from the first day in the academy to the last day of an officer's career, they're mindful of these risky possibilities.

He says he didn't believe the shots came from someone in one of the crashed cars.

Pascual quickly ducked to the ground when he heard the gunfire.

"I know her dad, everyone knows who he is".

But perhaps her favorite title was Police Officer. He said of the 22-year-old woman that "everybody who met her liked her". She describes the city, a 15-mile drive west of Sacramento, as a "progressive, safe, family-oriented university community".

The suspect was later found dead in a house near the shooting. He had handed Corona his license and she was returning it when he heard shots from close behind his right shoulder. She's the daughter of a cop and was on the job for only a few weeks.

"Her peers talked about how selfless she was, how she would do anything for anyone at any time", said Corporal Ralph Knecht, Sacramento Police Department.

"We join all Californians in mourning the loss of this courageous officer and extend our deepest condolences to Officer Corona's family, friends, and coworkers", Newsom said in a statement. The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department has taken over as the lead agency in the investigation.

It wasn't immediately clear if the shooter was in the traffic accident or what the motive was.

Corona, who followed in the footsteps of her father to become an officer, graduated from the police academy in July and was sworn in as an officer two weeks ago. He has not been identified. Police said the shooting happened in the area of Fifth and C streets near downtown.

Police have not named the suspect, who was found in a house near the shooting, nor determined what prompted the shooting.
