The life of Michael Davis, the Placer County Sheriff’s Detective who was shot during a northern California shooting spree last month, was honored today at a Christian church in Roseville.
Officers wore white gloves and stood guard alongside the coffin draped with an American flag. Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner said Davis is remembered for his sense of humor, his insight and his commitment to his community.
“Mike was a peace officer. Danny Oliver was a peace officer. They engaged evil. They fought for your peace, for your tranquility. That’s who Michael Davis was.”
