Officers made entry into the house using a robotic device, and its camera verified the man was dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

Also bolstering the staff has been the overwhelming response from the community, which throughout the day Friday delivered bouquets of flowers, food and handwritten notes and posters honoring Corona and thanking her fellow officers for their service. "She is very excited to be a police officer and is very dedicated to the profession of law enforcement".

Natalie Corona followed in her father's footsteps and became a police officer, fulfilling a lifelong dream just a few months ago when her dad had the honor of pinning the badge on her uniform.

Before Corona entered the academy, the Davis Police Department ran out of funding for the paid position she had been in. Despite valiant attempts by paramedics to save her, Corona succumbed to injuries at UC Davis hospital, Pyte said.

Police embarked on a manhunt for the shooter.

The suspect, who has not been identified, was later found dead inside a home with a self-inflicted gunshot wound following a short standoff with officers, the Davis Police Department said Friday.

The Sacramento Bee reports Corona's father spent 26 years as a Colusa County Sheriff's deputy. He stepped down from the force in 2012 after 26 years.

A 22-year-old police officer on the job only a few weeks was shot and killed by a suspect who opened fire as she was investigating a three-car crash, authorities in Northern California said. My heart is broken'. "Your family at the Colusa County Sheriff's Office stands with you in this hard time".

Do pray for all of Officer Corona's friends and family at this incredibly painful time.

News of the officer's death was reported by Marlei Martinez at KCRA News. Davis firefighters on duty at the downtown station responded immediately and began lifesaving effort before her transport to the University of California, Davis Medical Center.

The man who gunned down Officer Natalie Corona in this small college town on Thursday night later killed himself in a house, but police still don't know the motive for the attack, Police Chief Darren Pytel said Friday. "We join all Californians in mourning the loss of this courageous officer and extend our deepest condolences to Officer Corona's family, friends, and co-workers".

"She would lay down her life". The chief said as police began to surround it, he stepped outside wearing a bulletproof vest.

She wrote in a status update in 2016: 'I would like this photograph to serve as my gratitude for all those law enforcement men and women who have served, who are now serving, and those who have died in the line of duty protecting our liberties in this great country'. No words of gratitude can express the ultimate sacrifice of Officer Corona. This is an absolutely senseless crime.

Meanwhile, plans for laying Corona to rest are still pending.

'We are always proud of the work our officers do, but have a little extra pride today, ' the caption read.

No one else was injured in the barrage, police said.

"Natalie was just full of life and full of energy and just an absolute pleasure to be around", Chief Pytel said.

No one had been arrested in the shooting, and it is not known what led to the killing, Raymond said.

Payne was hired in July as an academy cadet and graduated in November.

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

"This was the job that she was meant to do. She enjoyed serving", Payne said.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards weighed in on the fatal shooting, calling the death a "tragic loss".
