Kevin Douglas Limbaugh's name was released Saturday as authorities continued to investigate his motive for the attack. Davis Police Chief Darren Pytel told reporters Thursday that Corona, who graduated from the academy last July, reported to the scene of a three-car crash.
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". "I notified the press, internal affairs, and even the Federal Bureau of Investigation about it". I'm highly sensitive to its effect on my inner ear.
"He wasn't on the radar as someone who was continuously calling in, expressing hate for us", Davis Police Spokesman, Lt. Paul Doroshov. Doroshov said Limbaugh went to the station to drop off the firearm. "As for the placement of the note, which was found face-up on Limbaugh's bed, "I really can't speculate as to why it was there like that".
Police said a gunman on a bicycle ambushed the officer, shooting her from the shadows as she investigated a vehicle accident, then reloaded and narrowly avoided wounding others before walking home. He then unleashed a barrage of bullets that struck a bus, firetruck and a young woman's backpack. At one point, Limbaugh emerged from the home wearing a bulletproof vest and yelled at the officers before going back inside. After reloading a second time, the gunman approached a fire rescue squad, prompting a firefighter to run.
The officers never fired at him. He was later found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.More news: R. Kelly's denies all sexual misconduct allegation through lawyer

The shooting wasn't Limbaugh's first brush with the law.
Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, 48, was convicted of punching a casino co-worker and ordered to surrender the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, according to the Sacramento Bee.
The man accused of murdering a California police officer was ordered to surrender an AR-15 in another case past year.
A candlelight vigil for the slain officer was scheduled Saturday night. "But just seeing you all here does make a difference".
