Motive for slaying of California policewoman still a mystery

We have prepared for an active shooter’ says Chief Medical Officer at Chicago’s Mercy Hospital

After the shooting Corona multiple times, the suspect reloaded his firearm and fired toward a firefighter and a fire truck that were also responding to the traffic collision.

When asked if he had given any thought to the suspect in Corona's murder, Merced Corona said, "We're not angry".

Chico Police Chief O'Brien said the department always has conversations about officer safety.

Corona had just completed her field training a few weeks earlier and was on patrol Thursday when she responded to a triple auto accident at 6:45 PM.

"Joe Shinners was intelligent, he was honorable and he was hardworking", Provo Police Chief Richard Ferguson told reporters at a press conference.

The shooting devastated the Davis Police Department, which has about 60 sworn officers and about 30 other employees. She was gunned down in the line of duty on Thursday while responding to a vehicle crash in Davis.

Pytel said the gunman left and went to his apartment nearby.

The suspect's name has not yet been released by the coroner's office. He stepped down from the force in 2012 after 26 years.

Jose Merced Corona is a retired Colusa County sheriff's sergeant who was elected to the Board of Supervisors last November. My heart is broken'. Now, the community is comforting her family in this time of grief.

"She had a personality that was just energizing", Pytel said.

Governor Gavin Newsom said in a statement that he and his wife are "terribly saddened to learn of the death.Officer Corona was protecting her community from harm when she was tragically shot in the line of duty". Corona was taken to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, where she later died.

NBC Officially Cuts Ties With Megyn Kelly
Kelly's exit from NBC was greeted on social media with a mix of celebration and critical barbs directed at the network. Kelly apologized for the comment in a letter to NBC staff, and later made an on-air apology.

"We join all Californians in mourning the loss of this courageous officer and extend our deepest condolences to Officer Corona's family, friends, and coworkers", he said. "You see the accomplishment in what she'd done, graduating from the academy and pursuing what she wanted to do for the rest of her life". "Anything", said Davis resident Tracey Winton. "We are grateful for the professionalism displayed by law enforcement, firefighters and medical staff who responded to the incident". No words of gratitude can express the ultimate sacrifice of Officer Corona.

"I would like this photograph to serve as my gratitude for all those law enforcement men and woman who have served, who are now serving, and those who have died in the line of duty protecting our liberties in this great country", she wrote, alongside the picture below. "#LawEnforcement #Blueline #Thankyou #Lausphotography - feeling thankful". "May you Rest in Peace Officer Corona".

In early December, Corona was photographed bringing presents to the new home of a wildfire victim from Paradise, California, who had lost everything in last year's deadly Camp Fire.

Isabel Espindola, who worked with Corona at Colusa Casino Resort prior to Corona's police training, said of her friend, "She was so excited to start the police academy".

The shooter, who later died from what police said was a self-inflicted gunshot wound, shot Corona several more times.

"I don't remember her talking about anything else than wanting to become an officer", said Gomez, who said her cousin was an athletic star in high school, excelling in volleyball, basketball and track. "I've known her for a couple of years".

She was a sweetheart, full of smiles and laughter and will be sorely missed. "She had a caring heart".

Gov. John Bel Edwards weighed in on the fatal shooting, calling the death a "tragic loss".

In October 2016, Corona posted a picture on Facebook. "We may not understand it, but the lord has his plan for all of us, and God made a decision to take her from us, but we're not angry". "I've spoken to her parents and I can tell you that this is just been devastating".

"The person was behind me and all of a sudden I heard gunshots", he said.
