Sacramento Police Officer Shot and Killed During Domestic Violence Call

Sacramento, CA...From the Sacramento Police Dept...This is a summary of the facts known at this time, as this incident is actively being investigated. The information contained is subject to change. Additional details will be released as they become available. On June 19, 2019, at approximately 11:43 a.m., the Sacramento Police Department received a call regarding a disturbance between a male and a female. Officers made contact with the involved female at a residence in the 3700 block of Esperanza Drive.




At approximately 5:41p.m. officers responded to a residence in the 200 block of Redwood Avenue to standby while the involved female gathered some belongings from a residence.

At approximately 6:10 p.m., officers on scene reported shots had been fired, and an officer was struck by gun fire. The suspect continued to fire multiple times and the officers believed the gun used by the suspect was a rifle type firearm.

At approximately 6:54 p.m., additional officers responded with an armored vehicle to rescue the officer that had been shot.

At approximately 6:59 p.m., the officer was transported to a local area hospital.

Officers remained on scene and secured a perimeter to contain the suspect who sporadically shot at officers. Throughout this prolonged event, multiple officers returned fire. Officers also evacuated nearby residents in the area.

Officers from the Crisis Negotiation Team eventually established communication with the suspect. Several hours later, at approximately 1:54 a.m., on June 20, 2019, the suspect surrendered and was safely taken into custody. Officers secured the scene for CSI and detectives.

The officer who was shot, Tara Christina O’Sullivan succumbed to her injuries after being transported to the hospital.

Officer O’Sullivan was hired by the Sacramento Police Department in January of 2018 as a Community Service Officer. In July of that same year, she entered our police academy as a police recruit and graduated from the academy on December 20, 2018.

“We are heartbroken for the loss of Tara O’Sullivan, an officer who served our community and the Sacramento Police Department with honor, integrity and commitment. Our hearts and thoughts are with her family, friends and colleagues during this tragic time, and we at the City of Sacramento share in their immense grief.”

-Howard Chan, Sacramento City Manager

“To Tara’s parents and family, and Tara’s fellow officers, I am so sorry. As a father I am grieving with you. As Mayor of the city she swore to protect, our city is heartbroken and we are here for you every step of the way.” -Mayor Darrell Steinberg

Over the next several days, Homicide Detectives, Internal Affairs, and Crime Scene Investigation Units will be at the scene to conduct an officer-involved shooting investigation. As part of the department’s protocol, this incident is being investigated in conjunction with the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office, the Sacramento City Attorney’s Office and the City’s Office of Public Safety Accountability.

At this time, we have identified five officers who fired their duty weapons during this incident. These five officers each have between three and five years experience with our department. All were placed on paid administrative leave per standard protocol.

So Sorry

This is just so heartbreaking. And happening way too often nowadays, between mental illness causing people to act out and kill, or drugs. Law enforcement officers do not get paid enough!

    The shooter must have been one of those melanin rich Amish persons that commit so many of the crimes in Sacto.

      Sadly you are correct, and we know what party they belong to too, don't we?. Looks like he's going to join the other 70% of the brotherhood of democrats in our Federal prison system

In today’s world this is unacceptable indeed. We all have trials and trauma at some time in life. It starts with teaching our children to respect other people and this won’t happen!!! Period

The Democrats have and continually exhibit values, principles, morals, and honesty in addition to compassion and caring for people. Quite the opposite of the republican party of today. Case in point, your inappropriate comment demeaning the Democrats when this article is about this officer's tragic death.

    Agreed, it's not hard to figure out why they are called Trumptards.
    But RIP Patrol Person you were doing your job. May your spirit rise to God;s house and you reunite with love ones past and future. Your courage and bravery are acknowledged.

      This has nothing to do with republicans nor democrats, what idiots you all are to even make a statement. Saw a picture of the MURDER on fox 40. The picture tells the story. Case closed. Sad

So her fellow police officers hunkered down behind vehicles while she bled to death. Her "training officer" should never be allowed to train another officer ever and her brothers and sisters in blue are a bunch of cowards who hid while she bled out. Just like the coward deputy in the Florida school shooting, they should all be fired.
