A Davis police officer was shot and killed Thursday and a search for the suspect is underway.
Police say officer Natalie Corona, 22, was taken to the hospital where she later died.
The shooting happened around 7 p.m. near 5th and C streets in downtown Davis. Corona was responding to a three-vehicle crash when she was shot, Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel said.
Police have lifted a shelter in place for the town of Davis, and officers are narrowing their search to the area of 5th and E streets in downtown.
Pytel says Corona started with the Davis Police Department in 2016 as a part-time employee and completed her field training just before Christmas.
Corona had only been working in the field on her own for a couple of weeks before the shooting.
Pytel says the last time the Davis Police department lost an officer was in 1959.
