This portrait of Natalie Corona by Richard Laus shows the Davis Police officer who was killed in the line of duty on Thursday.

Police say Limbaugh also shot a flurry of bullets toward others, striking a bystander's backpack and a firefighter in the boot, before fleeing into a home.

Police found the handguns in the home. He had left a backpack at the crime scene with information that led the officers to his home, Pytel said.

No one else was injured in the attack besides Corona, who died at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. She had just completed six months of field training when she was ambushed while checking driver's licenses during a routine call.

"I'd really like to see as many people as possible from the community attend", Pytel said during Saturday's vigil at Davis' Central Park, which was attended by at least 1,000 people. There, the Sacramento Bee reports, several members of the Davis police force shared anecdotes illustrating Corona's commitment to helping others. Then without warning, he opened fire, killing the rookie officer.

In an interview with Fox40, Corona's father described a recent incident in which his daughter helped a man she arrested, leaving him in tears. They were holding a meeting in a nearby church when the shots rang out Thursday night.

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

Police spokesman Lt. Paul Doroshov said the paper was found face up on the gunman's bed.

Corona is survived by her parents, Merced and Lupe, and her sisters, Jackie, Cathy and Cindy.
