BREAKING: 22-year-old, newly sworn-in officer Natalie Corona fatally shot on duty; cop-killer commits suicide during police standoff

A police officer in Davis, California, who was sworn in only five months ago was fatally shot after responding to a car accident.

The Associated Press reports that Natalie Corona, 22, was fatally shot on Thursday evening after reporting to the scene of a traffic accident near downtown Davis, which is west of Sacramento.

A manhunt for the gunman led to a home near the site of the shooting, where the suspect reportedly died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound following a standoff with police.

Officer Corona was reportedly sworn in this past August, and NBC News reports that she was on the job for only a few weeks before she was killed.

Authorities have not released the identity of the suspect or any information about a possible motive.

This is a developing story. CrimeOnline will provide an update when more information is available.
