Davis police say the believe Natalie Corona was ambushed

Davis police read a note Limbaugh left on his bed, apparently written just before he killed himself. He had left a backpack at the crime scene with information that led the officers to his home, Pytel said.

Investigators also found two semiautomatic handguns, a 9 mm and a.45 caliber, inside the home.

"She was a rising star in the department", Davis police Chief Darren Pytel said in a news conference late Thursday.

A man on a bicycle shot Davis police Officer Natalie Corona, 22, Thursday night as she responded to a triple-car crash in the city of Davis.

After hearing a single gunshot inside, the officers sent a robot where Limbaugh was found to have fatally shot himself in the head.

The typed letter continues: "I notified the press, internal affairs, and even the Federal Bureau of Investigation about it". I am highly sensitive to its affect (sic) on my inner ear. Firefighters were at the scene-their department was near where it happened-and had tried to save her, Pytel said.

The Sacramento Bee reported he was charged and convicted on a battery case last fall in which he assaulted a co-worker in the face after a dispute.

Corona realized her dream in August upon graduating from the police academy.

The memorial service for slain Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at the Activities and Recreation Center, or ARC, on the campus of UC Davis. She was sworn into the department on August 2 and her father pinned her badge, according to the Williams Pioneer. The daughter of a retired Colusa County sheriff's deputy, she finished her training in December and had been on the job for a few weeks. "I did my best to appease them, but they have continued for years and I can't live this way anymore". There, the Sacramento Bee reports, several members of the Davis police force shared anecdotes illustrating Corona's commitment to helping others.

Davis police posted a photo of Corona delivering the presents in December, writing, "We are always proud of the work our officers do, but we have a little extra pride today".

More than 1,000 mourners attended a Saturday evening vigil for Corona.
