At around 12:45a Thursday morning, Sacramento Police announced that 26-year-old Officer Tara O’Sullivan died from her gunshot wounds.
O’Sullivan was on a domestic disturbance call with her training officer, when she was shot in North Sacramento.
Because of a shooter with a rifle firing from inside the house, it took almost an hour to get to O’Sullivan, who was laying in the backyard.
O’Sullivan was scheduled to move to her next phase after her training in two weeks, which would have been going out on her own as an officer.
Meanwhile, the standoff on Redwood Avenue is now over. An armed suspect has now surrendered after a standoff that was several hours long with Sacramento police Wednesday night.
