Gunman who killed Davis Officer Natalie Corona was ordered to surrender AR-15 rifle

“The gunman who shot and killed Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona Thursday night has been identified as Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, a 48-year-old man who was ordered last fall to surrender a semiautomatic rifle after he was convicted in a battery case,” the Sacramento Bee is reporting.

“Yolo County Superior Court records show Limbaugh was charged in September with battery with serious bodily injury, a incident that a source said stemmed from him punching a co-worker at Cache Creek Casino in the face after a dispute.

“The case was resolved as a misdemeanor conviction, and California Department of Justice records show he agreed to surrender a black .223-caliber Bushmaster AR-15 rifle in November.

“Court records also show Limbaugh did not possess any other weapons, and authorities have yet to determine where he obtained the two semiautomatic handguns he is believed to have used in a Thursday night rampage that killed the 22-year-old officer and shot up a surrounding downtown neighborhood.

“One former roommate, who asked not to be identified, told The Bee that ‘Kevin had a troubled life and felt trapped and had deep anger issues that he never let any of his friends see.’

“Online public records also show Limbaugh owes a $9,746 state tax lien in Bernanillo, N.M., that was filed against him in 2016.

“Limbaugh lived in a small, blue-gray house along a busy road in Davis, one block away from where Corona was killed.”
