Davis Police Department officials say 22-year-old Officer Natalie Corona was shot after responding to a traffic accident about 6:45 p.m. Thursday in the community west of Sacramento. Corona was transported to UC Davis where she died of her injuries. Corona, just a few weeks into her solo patrol assignment after completing a six-month field training program, was dispatched to the scene.

Police later surrounded a house one block away from the shooting scene where they found the suspect, who had killed himself, authorities said.

"There are students and staff still on campus and police will be assisting as much as they can to escort people to get home tonight", the post reads.

Corona began her service with the department as a community service officer in 2016.

The gunman who shot and killed Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona Thursday night has been identified as Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, a 48-year-old man who was ordered last fall to surrender a semiautomatic rifle after he was convicted in a battery case.

"The shooter has been found inside a home ... with what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound", the department said in a statement.

Even as Natalie moved up in her career, he said she treated everyone the same whether they were the janitor or the chief.

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.

"I can tell you that I have never seen anyone work harder in a part-time capacity and more motivated to be police officer than Natalie", Pytel said.

"She had such a big heart", Nicole said. Jose Merced Corona is a retired Colusa County sheriff's sergeant who was elected to the Board of Supervisors last November.

Dozens of family and friends have offered their "thoughts and prayers" for the rookie cop.

Pytel described Corona as a "rising star in the department". Her mother is a first-grade teacher, and two cousins are also in law enforcement, Gomez said.

"I gave [Corona] my license and she was just about to give it to me". "She felt very strong about that and about protecting the people behind the badge".

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'.

This has been a deadly year for California police officers. Cpl.

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. That killing rekindled a debate over California's sanctuary law that limits cooperation by local officials with federal immigration authorities.
