CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities say a man suspected of shooting two sheriff’s deputies in suburban Chicago is in custody.

McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren says 52-year-old Scott Peters was captured Thursday afternoon about two miles from his Holiday Hills home.

Nygren says police were led to Peters by residents, who told investigators a man fitting the suspect’s description was walking along a nearby street. Nygren says Peters didn’t resist arrest.

Peters is suspected of firing a rifle through the front door when deputies arrived at his home early Thursday. The sheriff says Peters fled after the shooting.

Nygren says the deputies, who are hospitalized, were responding to a domestic disturbance call. He says Peters’ wife and child were in the home but unharmed.

Holiday Hills is about 45 miles northwest of downtown Chicago.
