Officer killed during a domestic dispute at a Sacramento home


SACRAMENTO, Calif. —A gunman suspected of killing a Sacramento police officer during a domestic dispute has surrendered.

26 year old Tara O’Sullivan died at UC Davis Medical Center hours after the gunman shot her Wednesday night.

Police say several officers were on a domestic disturbance call, helping a woman collect her belongings and leave a home in a north Sacramento neighborhood, when the officer was wounded. The other woman wasn’t hurt, and the relationship between her and the gunman wasn’t immediately known.

Police say O’Sullivan was in a backyard and officers couldn’t reach her because the gunman kept firing.

They say it took more than 45 minutes to get her to the hospital.
