Investigators also found a letter on his bed that accused Davis police of using "sonic waves meant to keep dogs from barking" against him.

In addition to the note, officers found two semiautomatic handguns inside the house, a 9 mm and a.45-caliber, Doroshov told the Sacramento Bee.

The Yolo County coroner said Saturday the man was 48-year-old Kevin Douglas Limbaugh.

Corona was shot multiple times, Davis police Chief Darren Pytel said.

Among the evidence recovered from the home of a man who shot and killed a rookie California police officer were two unregistered guns and a letter claiming police had been bombarding him with ultrasonic waves. He was later found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The suspect went on to say in his note, "I notified the press, Internal Affairs, and even the FBI" and that "he can't live this way anymore".

"This clearly to us looks like an ambush", Pytel said. I am highly sensitive to its affect (sic) on my inner ear.

The man accused of murdering a California police officer was ordered to surrender an AR-15 in another case past year.

The shooting devastated the Davis Police Department, which has about 60 sworn officers and about 30 other employees.

Corona was described by her family as "very hard-working", "humble" and "driven", in interviews with The Sacramento Bee Friday.Law enforcement runs in Corona's family: Her father, Merced, is a retired Colusa County Sheriff's deputy who served on the force for 26 years. "She just worked like you can't believe". 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.

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".

Her devotion to the department and Davis community was put on display Saturday night, where more than 1,000 mourners gathered for a candlelight vigil in her honor. As part of that case, Limbaugh was ordered to surrender an AR-15 rifle, the report said.
