Sheriff's deputy shooting case goes to trial

Posted:
URBANDALE (KWWL) -- A grand jury will consider the case of a sheriff's deputy involved in a shooting that killed a man in Urbandale.

Deputy Dale Petersen fired the wrong type of special ammunition in a standoff in June. Peterson says he thought the bullet was a beanbag round designed to stun the man, but investigators later learned the ammo was a hard plastic bullet.
