Officials say a 22-year-old police officer who was killed in Northern California while investigating a three-car crash was the daughter of a retired sheriff’s deputy and a rising star at the David Police Department.
Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona was shot after responding alone to a traffic accident shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday in the city west of Sacramento. Corona was taken to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, where she later died.
The Sacramento Bee reports Corona’s father spent 26 years as a Colusa County Sheriff’s deputy.
Officials say Corona graduated from the Sacramento Police Department’s training academy in July and completed her field training just before Christmas.
