Female Rookie Cops Killed in 2 Days

It's hard to find a person in Arbuckle who didn't know of Natalie Corona.

Corona, whose father spent 26 years as a Colusa County Sheriff's deputy, graduated from the Sacramento Police Department's training academy in July and completed her field training just before Christmas, officials said.

"She would give people money, if they didn't have food", he said. "And now she's become yet another officer killed in the line of duty It's sickening".

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. She was one of six new officers sworn in by Pytel on August 2.

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

She had been on the job just a few weeks.

Flowers left at the scene where Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona was shot and killed in Davis, Calif., Jan. 11, 2019. She graduated in 2014 from Pierce High School in Arbuckle, where she was involved in volleyball, basketball and was voted homecoming queen. She still showed up to work, he noted, as a volunteer.

Newsom says he and his wife, Jennifer, are saddened by the death of a woman he called "courageous" who died "protecting her protecting her community from harm". She just enjoyed her job.

A cousin of 22-year-old Natalie Corona says the slain police officer was the eldest of four girls who dreamed of following her father into a career in law enforcement.

"I was extremely proud".

Football Legend Phil Masinga Has died, Aged 49
According to reports in the local media, Masinga had been admitted to hospital early last month with an illnesss. Despite Masinga not delivering the goals Leeds hoped for he was still immensely popular at the club.

He said his daughter should be remembered for her caring heart.

"She was a rising star in the department", said Pytel said. "We are grateful for the professionalism displayed by law enforcement, firefighters and medical staff who responded to the incident".

Natalie's father wants everyone to know, she died doing what she loved.

Her death comes just a day after another young female cop, Louisiana Officer Chateri Payne (above, right), was fatally shot on her way to work Wednesday night outside a home on the west side of Shreveport.

"But that was the last time", Doroshov said. Corona prevailed, he said, because of her strong desire to serve in uniform. Now, the community is comforting her family in this time of grief. "It was one of her true passions to do this". The chief said as police began to surround it, he stepped outside wearing a bulletproof vest. "I anxious about her getting hurt and being out there in the streets".

He said he ducked and when he looked up Corona was on the ground and the shooter was "shooting at what looked like random people to me".

Aguiar-Curry said her heart broke Thursday night upon hearing the news.

As Corona was treated for multiple gunshot wounds, including one to her neck, the suspect fled the scene, heading south on C Street toward Third Street and apparently circling the block before returning to his house at 501 E St.

His motive remains unknown, and Pytel said he did not know whether the outside investigators who are leading the homicide investigation have obtained information that would explain his assault on an officer. So I put five dollars in their bag and told them that was for them to eat after they got out. But I made a decision to stand tall on my dream. "I've heard officers describe her as our daughter, our friend, and just the sister we all wanted". "For her and for us".
