Ariz. Officer Involved In 6 Kills Gets Disability

A city review board has granted disability retirement to a Scottsdale police officer involved in six deadly shootings over the past decade.

The Public Safety Personnel Retirement System board unanimously voted to approve the application for accidental-disability retirement by Officer James Peters for $4,500 a month.

Accidental disability means that the 37-year-old Peters suffered an injury on the job that prevents him from doing his job.

The Arizona Republic reported that the decision still is subject to final review by a state panel.

Peters was involved in seven shootings since 2002. Six of them were fatal, including the most recent incident on Feb. 14 involving a man cut down by a single rifle shot to the head while clutching his baby grandson. The shooting is still under review.
