DAVIS, Calif.- Police have confirmed that 22-year-old Davis police officer Natalie Corona died in a shooting Thursday evening.

According to law enforcement, the shooting happened around 7 p.m. in downtown Davis when Officer Corona responded to a three-vehicle crash. Several streets were shut down while officers searched for a suspect. Early this morning officers found the body of the suspect in a Davis home with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

Police have not released the identity of the suspect.

Officers say the close-knit department is hit hard by the shooting. A procession was held early this morning for the fallen officer. 

Officer Corona was sworn in just two weeks ago. She followed in her father Merced Corona’s footsteps to work in law enforcement, graduating from the police academy in July of 2018.
