The Florida deputy faces manslaughter charges for shooting Jermaine McBean walking with an unloaded pellet gun.

Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Peter Peraza — who was given a bravery award for the shooting by his bosses while it was still under investigation — surrendered early Friday and was expected to be released on $25,000 bond, prosecutors said. He was suspended without pay and faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
