Had the honor of meeting the family of officer Tara O’Sullivan who lost her life protecting and serving my community of Sacramento. My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with the O’Sullivan’s. Hope that today was small bright spot in such a rough time. pic.twitter.com/RkbCiNT8j6

O’Sullivan’s mother Kelley, father Dennis, and sister Krista were greeted by coaches and players, including Sacramento-native and 49er defensive end Arik Armstead, who offered condolences to the family.
O’Sullivan was shot and killed on June 19 when suspected shooter Adel Ramos opened fire in what police are calling a police ambush.
Tara O'Sullivan, a Sacramento police officer, was killed in the line of duty responding to a domestic violence call last month.
