Man accused in deputies’ shooting pleads innocent

WOODSTOCK, Ill. (AP) — A Holiday Hills man accused of shooting two sheriff’s deputies in his home last month has pleaded not guilty.

The (Crystal Lake) Northwest Herald reports that 52-year-old Scott Peters is charged with six counts of attempted murder of a peace office and battery and weapons charges. He denied the charges during an arraignment Friday before McHenry County Circuit Judge Sharon Prather.

Peters is being held on $7 million bond.

Authorities allege Peters fired a semi-automatic rifle at sheriff’s deputies who responded Oct. 16 to his home after a report of a domestic disturbance.

Deputies Khalia Satkiewicz and Dwight Maness were injured by gunfire.

Peters, a military veteran, allegedly wore a military-style helmet and a ballistic vest while firing the gun, according to police.
