The note left by Kevin Douglas Limbaugh of Davis, Calif., was released after Davis police identified the 48-year-old as the man who fatally shot Corona during the officer's response to a auto collision Thursday night.

Police surrounded a home several blocks from the shooting scene and tried to coax the man out of the building, the newspaper reported.

Pytel described Corona as a "rising star" in the department, and said that others thought of her as a sister and daughter.

No one else was injured in the attack besides Corona, who died at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento.

"I haven't seen anyone work harder in a part-time capacity and work harder to be a police officer than Natalie", he said. As of Thursday, he said he had no information as to whether she was targeted, and he wasn't sure if someone involved in the crash pulled the trigger. "She just worked like you can't believe". "She would come home, and she would be beaming", Merced Corona told the outlet.

Hundreds of people attended a Saturday night vigil for the rookie cop, who had been on the force for less than a year. He was forced to give up his AR-15 semi automatic rifle in November to Davis police.

Officer Kerith Briesenick recalled a time when Corona went out of her way to aid a victim of the Camp Fire in response to a call.

After opening fire on Corona without warning Thursday night, Limbaugh shot in another direction, including toward a firefighter, Davis police Chief Darren Pytel said Friday. Shots were fired during the incident, and Corona was moved to a hospital, where she was declared dead.

She replied, "I know Dad, but I don't mind'".

Limbaugh agreed to surrender firearms in his possession, said Lt. Paul Doroshov of the Davis Police Department.

Investigators also found two semiautomatic handguns inside the house, a 9 mm and a.45-caliber, not registered to Limbaugh, Doroshov said.

"The Davis Police department has been hitting me with ultra sonic waves meant to keep dogs from barking", reads the note, which was typed on a computer. I notified the press, internal affairs and even the Federal Bureau of Investigation about it.
