Killer of of­fi­cer named:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

A man who shot and killed a rookie po­lice of­fi­cer in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia be­fore tak­ing his own life dur­ing a stand­off with po­lice was a 48-year-old con­vict who had been or­dered to sur­ren­der a semi-au­to­matic ri­fle.

Kevin Dou­glas Lim­baugh’s name was re­leased Satur­day as au­thor­i­ties con­tin­ued to in­ves­ti­gate his mo­tive for the at­tack.

The Sacra­mento Bee reports that court doc­u­ments show Lim­baugh was charged and con­victed in a bat­tery case last fall, and he agreed in Novem­ber to sur­ren­der the weapon.

The case stemmed from Lim­baugh get­ting ar­rested in Septem­ber for as­sault­ing some­one at Cache Creek Casino, Yolo County Sher­iff’s Sgt Matthew Davis said.

Au­thor­i­ties have not de­ter­mined where Lim­baugh ob­tained the two semi-au­to­matic hand­guns he was be­lieved to have used in the Thurs­day night at­tack that killed 22-year-old Of­fi­cer Natalie Corona in the col­lege town of Davis. (AP)
