Scott Peters

Kathryn Kriepki, a 67-year-old woman from Elk Grove Village, Illinois has been charged with illegally providing guns to her nephew, Scott Peters, who is currently facing charges for shooting two McHenry County Sheriff deputies last October.

Kriepki is now being held on $100,000 bail, on the charge of “delivering firearms to someone who does not possess a Firearm Owner’s Identification card”, according to CBS Chicago. Prosecutors said the rifle used to shoot the deputies has also been linked to a 1995 crime in Wilmette. Prosecutors said she gave three weapons to her 52-year-old nephew, Scott Peters last August: an AR-15 rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun, and a .38-caliber handgun.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Peters, a retired Green Beret with the U.S. Army Special Forces, allegedly went to the door when police arrived and  fired a rifle through it. He then  opened the door and continued firing, hitting a female deputy in the leg and striking a male deputy in the leg and abdomen. He then went outside, and fired more shots at police.

He critically injured a male and a female officer.  A third deputy fired at Peters, who fled the scene. He was later found walking alongside the road and was arrested.

  1. What is wrong with people? I wonder why the police were at this man’s residence in the first place? What really gets me is that this man was part of the Green Beret and he is hurting fellow officers? If there is something mentally wrong with this man, then shame on his Aunt for giving him these dangerous weapons.

    1. Why didn’t he have a permit to buy his own gun? Shame on the aunt for buying this gun for someone else. I think she needs to do jail time.
