Man Accused Of Shooting Officer Fights Iowa Return

Sioux City, IA

Authorities say a man arrested in Texas in connection with the shooting of an Iowa police officer is fighting extradition back to the state.

21-year-old Jamal Dean has indicated to authorities that he intends to fight extradition. He is in a maximum security section of the Kleberg County Jail in Kingsville, Texas.

Kleberg County Sheriff's Capt. Albert Castillo says Dean must enter a formal decision during a court hearing. Texas Gov. Rick Perry could be asked to authorize Dean's removal from the state.

Dean was arrested Saturday after a hunt involving local, state and federal authorities. He is accused of shooting a rifle at Sioux City Officer Kevin McCormick during a traffic stop on April 29. McCormick is expected to make a full recovery.
