A man accused of shooting a Sioux City police officer will be transported back to Iowa.
Wednesday afternoon 22-year-old Jamal Dean appeared in a Texas courtroom where he waived extradition, allowing the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office to bring him back to Sioux City.
On Saturday, U.S. Marshall’s caught Dean two hours north of the Mexico border. Sioux City police say Officer Kevin McCormick was performing a traffic stop last week when Dean got out of the car and started firing, hitting McCormick in the forehead. Dean then fled the scene leading to a city-wide manhunt. McCormick is recovering and plans to be back on duty next week.
The Sheriff’s office has ten days to bring Dean back to Iowa.
