WOODSTOCK, Ill. (AP) - Jurors in northern Illinois have convicted a Holiday Hills military veteran of shooting two McHenry County sheriff’s deputies at his home last year, among other charges.

The (Crystal Lake) Northwest Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1EVy9It ) 52-year-old Scott Peters will be sentenced June 25 after his Thursday conviction on 15 charges including seven counts of attempted murder of a police officer.

Authorities allege Peters fired more than a dozen rounds from a semi-automatic rifle at sheriff’s deputies who responded at 1:30 a.m. Oct. 16 to a report of a domestic disturbance. Peters fled afterward and eluded police for 16 hours. Deputies Khalia Satkiewicz and Dwight Maness were injured by gunfire. Maness now uses a wheelchair.

Peters’ defense attorney said he thought he was firing at someone trying to break into his home.
