Suspect in death of Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona identified

Davis police say the believe Natalie Corona was ambushed

The case stemmed from Limbaugh getting arrested in September for assaulting someone at Cache Creek Casino, Yolo County Sheriff's Sgt. Matthew Davis said.

The Yolo County district attorney's office had charged Limbaugh with a felony but later reduced it to a misdemeanor as part of a plea deal in October.

Davis police confirmed a typed letter was found inside Kevin Limbaugh's home.

In November, Limbaugh was ordered to turn in a black.223 Bushmaster AR-15 semiautomatic rifle.

The gunman who killed an officer in Northern California left behind a letter accusing the Davis police department of hitting him with "ultra sonic waves".

Detectives also found two semiautomatic handguns not registered to Limbaugh.

"He shouted some stuff, went back in and came back out with a firearm, then went back inside, pushed a couch in front of the door and officers heard a gunshot", Pytel said.

In the letter, Limbaugh said he notified internal affairs, the media and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "I did my best to appease them but they have continued for years, and I can't live this way anymore", said the note, which was signed, "Citizen Kevin Limbaugh". As of Thursday, he said he had no information as to whether she was targeted, and he wasn't sure if someone involved in the crash pulled the trigger.

It will be open to the public, according to an announcement by Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel. He struck a fire truck, the backpack of a woman nearby, a passing bus and a the boot of a fleeing firefighter. He emerged a second time with a gun before retreating. A suspect walked up and fired at Corona, he said.

Corona was described by her family as "very hard-working", "humble" and "driven", in interviews with The Sacramento Bee Friday.Law enforcement runs in Corona's family: Her father, Merced, is a retired Colusa County Sheriff's deputy who served on the force for 26 years.

The shooting devastated the Davis Police Department, which has about 60 sworn officers and about 30 other employees.
