Police Officer Natalie Corona, the rookie police killed on duty Thursday evening in Davis, California, was exposed to an "obstacle" style attack, the authorities said.
Corona, 22, was fatally shot by a gun approaching a bike and then proceeded to shoot shots at a variety of targets before finally killing himself as the police followed him to his home.
"At this time, Chief of Police Davis, Dirty Pytel, on a Friday news conference," we speculate that [Officer Corona] never saw him. "
The suspect – described only as a white man in the 20th century – had no previous criminal records or violence history, according to police officials speaking at the press conference. Earlier contact with the department came last year when he was subjected to a crime that the boss said was "nothing extraordinary," reported Sacramento Bee.
The attack occurred around 7 pm as officer Corona responded to a three-car collision. On the stage, he traveled on the bike, went up to Corona and started shooting, said Pytel.

The Sagittarius then began to disperse in an unfortunate manner, beating a nearby firetruck, a house, a suitable bus and the backpack of a woman whose life was saved when the litter was put in a textbook, said the manager.
"We seem like an ambush here," Pytel told reporters.
After the shooter, the shooter ran toward an apartment building he shared with a roommate where he did not give any hints about the rampage he had just done outside, Pytel said.
When the police surrounded the home, he came out.
"At one point, he came out," said Pytel. "It seemed like officers that he was wearing a ballistic vest, a bulletproof vest. Screaming a few things, going back in and coming back with a firearm, the chicken went back inside, shot a couch in front of the door and the officers heard a shot."

The shooter had shot himself in the head inside the house, Pytel said.
Corona, who graduated from the Sacramento Police Department's training academy in July, had shots once and fell to the ground. The suspect repeatedly kicked her several times and emptied her newspaper before he changed and shot again.
Pytel described Corona as a "rising star in the ward."
