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

The gunman suspected of shooting and killing 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.
Yolo County Superior Court records show Limbaugh was charged in September with battery with serious bodily injury, an 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.
Davis police have not yet released the name of the gunman, who they say shot himself inside his rental home at 501 E St. in Davis after Corona was killed.
A source told The Bee that probation authorities found no other criminal charges or any signs of mental health problems when the battery case was resolved.
