A Florida deputy has been indicted for manslaughter in the shooting death of Jermaine McBean, who was killed while walking home with an unloaded pellet gun he had just bought a pawn shop.
Broward County Sheriff Peter Peraza — who was given a bravery award for the shooting by his bosses while it was still under investigation — surrendered early Friday, prosecutors said. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
The case is the first time since 1980 that a police officer in Broward County has been indicted for a fatal on-duty shooting.
