The reward fund is growing in Sioux City for information leading to the arrest of 22-year-old Jamal Dean and the manhunt now covers parts of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.
The reward money is now up to $15,000 after the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms added another $5,000 to the fund Thursday. That’s in addition to money contributed by the U.S. Marshall’s Service, Crimestoppers and several local, anonymous donors.
Dean is wanted for attempted murder in the Monday afternoon shooting of Sioux City Police Officer Kevin McCormick, who was shot in the head during a routine traffic stop.
McCormick has been released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. The search for Dean has expanded to the tri-state area.Anyone with information regarding Dean’s whereabouts should call (712) 279-6960.
