For all the second-guessing, all the evaluation, all the speculation, everyone was reaching the same conclusion on Monday: Riverside County Sheriff's Deputies Michael P. Haugen and James Lehmann Jr. were going by the book when they were gunned down. They didn't have a chance against the sniper, waiting in ambush, apparently hiding behind desert scrub brush no higher than a knee, aided by the predawn darkness.

A 53-year-old man convicted of killing two Riverside County Sheriff's Department deputies in 1997 has died after possibly committing suicide, corrections authorities said Monday afternoon. Timothy Russell was convicted in the ambush slayings of James Lehmann Jr., 41, an Apple Valley resident, and Michael Haugen 33, who lived in San Jacinto.  The deputies had responded to an early morning domestic-violence call outside a remote desert-area mobile home where Russell lived.  Authorities said Russell was hiding behind scrub brush and opened fire with a World War II-vintage military carbine as the deputies got out of their patrol cars in pre-dawn darkness on Jan. 5. They died at the scene.
