A manhunt was launched for the shooting suspects immediately. Officers followed a trail of carjackings down Howe, through east Sacramento County and then to Auburn.

Placer County Sheriffs department says one of its officers was killed and another injured by the suspect, Marcelo Marquez, when they approached a stolen vehicle matching the description of one of the stolen vehicles. The sheriffs' department says the officers were hit with bullets from a high-powered rifle like an AR-15.

Davis' partner, Jeff Davis, was shot in the arm and is expected to survive.

Sacramanto Sheriff Scott Jones says Deputy Oliver was on a problem-oriented police team and was shot in the Motel Six parking lot near Arden Way and Ethan Way. He and his partner were approaching a vehicle they had radioed in as suspicious.

"We live as a family. Today, we grieve as a family and tomorrow we will start healing as a family."

Jones says Oliver was shot at close range.

"We do an after accident or after action debrief. We have a use of force sort of a debrief protocal where we can look at the incident with open eyes and see if there are policy, training, or other considerations to try to avoid similar incidents in the future or that we can better handle them."

Oliver's partner was able to return fire. One of Marquez's alleged carjacking victims told investigators Marquez was injured and had blood on his clothing.

Oliver was a 15-year veteran of the force. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.
