DAVIS — The gunman who shot and killed 22-year-old Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona Thursday night has been identified by the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office as 48-year-old Kevin Douglas Limbaugh.

According to documents obtained by FOX40, in September 2018, Limbaugh was facing a felony charge for battery with serious bodily injury after an incident at Cache Creek Casino Resort.

The casino’s spokesman, Micheal Traum, confirmed that Limbaugh was employed at the casino resort at the time of the incident.

“As indicated in court records, the suspect was an employee of Cache Creek Casino Resort who was involved in an altercation in September 2018. The incident was reported to the Sheriff’s Office and the suspect’s employment ended immediately thereafter. We cannot offer any further details on this personnel matter,” Traum said in a statement submitted to FOX40.

The charge was reduced to a misdemeanor through a plea agreement.

Yolo County’s Chief Deputy District Attorney, Jonathan Raven told FOX40, they found no records in their search indicating Limbaugh had any mental health issues.

Limbaugh pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge and was ordered to surrender a .223 caliber Bushmaster AR-15 semiautomatic rifle this past November.

It was believed at the time Limbaugh had no access to other weapons, according to the documents.

Suspect Found Dead

Thursday night, several law enforcement agencies joined in the search for the suspect. He was last seen wearing a baseball cap, black jacket, blue or tan jeans and black tactical boots.

Late Thursday night, officers surrounded a home on 5th Street, calling for someone inside to come out.

After Limbaugh’s roommate was evacuated, a dangerous dance began with officers surrounding the house for hours, the suspect coming out twice.

Authorities say Kevin Limbaugh left this note after he was found dead in his home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

After pushing a couch up against the front door, Police Chief Darren Pytel says Limbaugh shot himself in the head.

Authorities say Limbaugh left a note saying he notified multiple agencies that the Davis Police Department was using “ultrasonic waves” against him. The note was signed, Citizen Kevin Limbaugh.

Kevin Douglas Limbaugh’s History

Limbaugh’s father tells FOX40 his son has been estranged from their family for more than 10 years and loved ones had no idea why he vanished from their family and home state.

The father said he only had a vague idea his son was in California but also said he didn’t know where.

Limbaugh’s father also revealed to FOX40 that before disappearing, Limbaugh showed no signs of mental problems and was not involved in guns.
