Shortly after 10:26 a.m., Friday, October 24, 2014, the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department’s Communications Center received
radio traffic announcing an officer was down.
Deputy Danny Oliver (age 47), assigned to the Problem Oriented Policing unit for the North Division, along with his partner had stopped in a
motel parking lot to investigate a suspicious vehicle. Within minutes, Deputy Oliver was gunned down. Subsequently, the suspects went on a crime
spree, carjacking numerous vehicles and shooting others including the shooting death of Placer County Detective Michael Davis Jr.
An intensive regional search, by numerous law enforcement agencies, resulted in the arrest of a couple from Utah who had been traveling through the area.
Currently incarcerated in local jails, the suspects await trial for the murders of Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County Detective Michael Davis Jr.
