SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Latest on the fatal shooting of a police officer in Sacramento (all times local):

6:50 a.m.

Sacramento police say a man suspected of fatally shooting a police officer who was on a domestic violence call has surrendered to authorities and is in police custody.

The Sacramento Police Department said in a statement Thursday that investigators are still gathering evidence at the location where 26-year-old Officer Tara O'Sullivan was shot Wednesday.

Police have said O'Sullivan was assisting a woman removing belongings from a home in the north Sacramento neighborhood when the suspect shot her. The woman was not injured.

Police say the suspect who has not been identified fired his rifle on and off during an 8-hour standoff before he surrendered.

Officials say it took officers 45 minutes to rescue the wounded O'Sullivan because the gunman kept firing. She died at a hospital.

3:30 a.m.

Sacramento have been trying to negotiate the surrender of a gunman suspected of killing a police officer during a domestic dispute.

Deputy Police Chief Dave Peletta told reporters Tara O'Sullivan died at UC Davis Medical Center hours after the gunman opened fire on her Wednesday.

Officials say the officer was wounded as several officers were on a domestic disturbance call, helping a woman collect her belongings and leave a home in the 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.

Peletta said O'Sullivan was partnered with a training officer when she was shot just before 6 p.m.

The Sacramento Bee newspaper reported O'Sullivan had been working for the city since January 2018.
