Sun Valley Man Faces Variety of Charges

A Sun Valley man faces charges of battery, assault, and child abuse after a shooting. Tuesday deputies responded to a home on Bozic Lane in Sun Valley for “shots fired.” A woman told deputies that she had a dispute with 30-year-old Scott Peterson, her boyfriend, and he had locked himself inside a bedroom with one of her children. The other children were removed by deputies. Deputies talked Peterson into surrendering about 10:45PM. The child with him was unharmed. Peterson is the suspect in a shooting outside the home earlier the same night, unrelated to the domestic dispute. The victim of the shooting, a friend of the suspect, was taken to a hospital and treated for what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
