Authorities are offering up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest of a man suspected of shooting a Sioux City police officer.

Sioux City Police Chief Doug Young says the reward for helping to find 22-year-old Jamal Dean is being offered by the United States Marshal Service and Crime Stoppers, as well as anonymous donations.

Police say Dean shot Officer Kevin McCormick after a routine traffic stop Monday. McCormick was still in his cruiser when Dean got out of the passenger side of his vehicle and allegedly fired a rifle several times toward the cruiser. Dean fled the area on foot and has been on the run since.

McCormick was struck in the forehead above the eye. He underwent surgery and has been released from the hospital.
