On October, 24th, 2014, Detective 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. Detective Davis and his partner spotted the vehicle the suspect was driving and began to approach it when the male subject opened fire with a rifle, striking and killing Detective Davis.
The female subject was arrested at the scene while the male subject fled into a residential area. He was taken into custody by PCSO several hours later.
Detective Davis had served with the Placer County Sheriff's Office for 15 years.
Detective Davis' father, Investigator Michael Davis Sr., was killed in the line of duty on October 24th, 1988, while serving with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. Their line of duty deaths occurred exactly 26 years apart to the day.
This weekend, peace officers from across Northern California joined PCSO and Mike's friends & family in the 2nd annual Det. Mike Davis Memorial Bike Ride to honor and remember our friend, partner, husband, father, and son.

It’s bad enough that Californians believe they can tax themselves into prosperity. A majority seems to think that a state can thrive with a burgeoning population of legally sanctioned stoners. Good luck with that.
