Sniper Kills Deputies Responding To Call
A sniper armed with a military rifle fatally shot two deputies responding to a domestic violence call at a trailer early Sunday. Shots were fired at other officers before a suspect was arrested several hours later.
Riverside County deputies James Lehmann Jr., 40, and Michael P. Haugen, 33, had just arrived at the trailer at 3 a.m. when they were killed by shots fired from about 50 yards away. It was unclear whether the shots came from the trailer, said sheriff’s spokesman Mark Lohman.
