Officer Natalie Corona, a 22-year-old with the Davis Police Department, was responding to a minor car crash on January 10th when she was unexpectedly approached by an unidentified man. The culprit pulled out a firearm and fatally shot Officer Corona.
Nearby witnesses reported that the gunman, who was riding a bicycle at the time, unloaded an entire magazine haphazardly towards the police officer. A bystander’s backpack was struck by a stray bullet, and a nearby firefighter reported that one bullet went through his work boots.
After unloading the barrage of bullets, the suspect sped away. Police promptly responded to the area and surrounded the perpetrator who was now inside a nearby residence.
He was quickly identified as 48-year-old Kevin Douglas Limbaugh. Police attempted to negotiate with the suspect, but he could be seen pushing and angling his couch in front of his door. A short time later, police heard a gunshot from the home.
Limbaugh’s suicide was self-inflicted. None of the officers fired any shots, and no one else was injured during the ordeal. Investigators discovered a letter that was left at the scene by the victim. They also located two semiautomatic handguns that matched the descriptions provided to authorities by witnesses to the cop killing.
The bizarre letter stated, “The Davis Police Department has been hitting me with ultra sonic waves meant to keep dogs from barking. I notified the press, internal affairs, and even the FBI about it….they have continued for years and I can’t live this way anymore.” It was signed “Citizen Kevin Limbaugh.”
