Summary: Investigator Michael Davis was shot and killed while taking part in a massive manhunt for the murderer of Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

The subject who murdered Deputy Oliver, assisted by a female accomplice, carjacked a vehicle and fled up I-80 after killing Deputy Oliver. They exited the highway in Auburn, before stopping on the side of the road off of Maidu Drive. Investigator Davis and his partner spotted the vehicle and began to approach it when the male subject opened fire with an AR-15 rifle, striking both officers.

Both officers were transported to a local hospital where Investigator Davis succumbed to his wounds.

The female subject was arrested at the scene while the male subject fled into a residential area. He was taken into custody several hours later.


The attacks began when Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy Danny Oliver, who was on patrol with his partner, stopped to check on a suspicious vehicle in a Motel 6 parking lot. Officials said Monroy fired from the car, fatally wounding Oliver, a 47-year-old father of two.

The couple then tried to carjack a motorist about a mile away, authorities said. When the driver, identified as Anthony Holmes, refused to turn over his keys, he was shot in the head.

After failing to commandeer Holmes' vehicle, officials said, the couple stole another car and drove to Auburn, where they were confronted by Placer County Sheriff's Det. Michael David Davis Jr. and Deputy Jeff Davis. Authorities say Luis Monroy shot both lawmen.

Jeff Davis was wounded in the arm and Michael Davis, 42, later died. The officers are not related.

Disposition: In a 14-count charging document, Luis Monroy Bracamonte, 34, also known as Marcelo Marquez, faces two counts of murdering a peace officer and three counts of attempted murder -- including the shooting of the motorist. He was also charged with several carjacking and weapons–related felonies.

Janelle Monroy, 38, is also charged with one count of murder and as an accessory with multiple counts of attempted murder and carjacking.
