A man and woman watch as law enforcement officers surround a home where a gunman has taken refuge after shooting a Sacramento police officer, Wednesday, June 19, 2019, in Sacramento, Calif.

A Sacramento police officer who was shot and seriously wounded Wednesday evening by a rifleman who blasted away at officers trying to rescue her has died, police said.

It is unknown how many other officers were in the area at the time, but Chandler says they took cover until an armored vehicle arrived in the neighborhood.

Charles "Sid" Heal, former commanding officer of Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's SWAT unit, said putting additional officers in harms' way without the proper protection is not an option.

If officers couldn't immediately get an armored police vehicle to the scene, he said, they should have commandeered a bank armored vehicle, bus or heavy construction equipment.

O'Sullivan was helping a woman collect her belongings and leave a home in a north Sacramento neighborhood near the intersection of Redwood Avenue and Edgewater Road about 6 p.m. Wednesday, when the gunman opened fire, authorities said. He did not offer any more information. A few hours later, she died at the UC Davis Medical Center.

The suspect continued firing at officers through the night.

O'Sullivan, 26, was the first Sacramento police officer to be killed in the line of duty in two decades.

Police remain in position, barricaded outside of the suspect house.

The incident began at around 11:43 a.m. when police responded to a call about a domestic disturbance in the Arden Arcade area. So far, he has not been identified.

"She gave her young life while protecting our community", Police Chief Dave Peletta said in a press conference Thursday.

Officers tried reaching her, only to be preempted as Ramos continued shooting at officers.

According to city records, O'Sullivan had been working for the city since January 2018.

In a Facebook post, Steinberg said O'Sullivan was in the first graduating class of a groundbreaking program at Sacramento State that "emphasizes the importance of inclusion and cultural competence for future law enforcement leaders - of which Tara undoubtedly would have been". "We are heartbroken that her life was taken so needlessly".

'We are devastated tonight. 'There are no words to convey the depth of sadness we feel or how heartbroken we are for the family of our young, fearless officer'.

"The men and women of our police department will continue to do our jobs to protect our community, and we will draw strength from the courage of Tara", the post continued.

'Our hearts are with Tara's family, whose pain can hardly be imagined. "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 huge grief". "There was no one more fit or ready than Tara O'Sullivan to represent the city of Sacramento and our fine police department".
