Jamal Dean, suspected of shooting a Sioux City police officer last week, has waived extradition, meaning Woodbury County investigators have 10 days to go to Texas and bring him back to Iowa.

The 21-year-old had indicated to authorities that he intended to fight extradition. He is being held at a maximum security section of the Kleberg County Jail in Kingsville, Texas.

Dean allegedly opened fired on a police car, wounding SCPD Officer Kevin McCormick during a traffic stop on April 29th. Dean was arrested last Saturday during a traffic stop in Rivera, Texas.

McCormick, who was shot in the forehead, is out of the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
