Shooter of Davis police officer identified

The gunman who ambushed and killed a California cop left behind a letter ranting about how police were targeting him with "ultra sonic waves", authorities said.

Doroshov said investigators found two semiautomatic handguns at Limbaugh's apartment and were trying to determine how he obtained them.

The note left by Kevin Douglas Limbaugh of Davis, Calif., was released after Davis police identified the 48-year-old as the man who fatally shot Corona during the officer's response to a vehicle collision Thursday night.

Corona started volunteering as a community service officer with the Davis Police Department after she graduated from high school and for a time work at the department even after funding for her position ran out.

The man, later identified by authorities as 48-year-old Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, approached Corona on a bicycle and opened fire, Pytel said - shooting the promising officer multiple times before unloading his entire magazine.

After opening fire on Corona without warning Thursday night, Limbaugh shot in another direction, including toward a firefighter, Davis police Chief Darren Pytel said Friday. At 1 am a robot was sent in to search the home and found Limbaugh dead from a self inflicted gunshot wound. Firefighters were at the scene-their department was near where it happened-and had tried to save her, Pytel said. "I am highly sensitive to its affect [sic] on my inner ear", the letter reads. "I did my best to appease them, but they have continued for years and I can't live this way anymore".

The Sacramento Bee reported he was charged and convicted on a battery case last fall in which he assaulted a co-worker in the face after a dispute.

Corona died at the UC Davis Medical Center in nearby Sacramento. Her father, Merced Corona, served 26 years as a Colusa County Sheriff's deputy, the Beereported.

The shooting devastated the Davis Police Department, which has about 60 sworn officers and about 30 other employees. "She just enjoyed her job". He was forced to give up his AR-15 semi automatic rifle in November to Davis police.
