SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a man accused of shooting a Sioux City police officer has been captured in Texas.
Police announced on Saturday that 21-year-old Jamal Dean was arrested without incident during a traffic stop in Rivera, Texas.
The Sioux City Journal reports several agencies learned on Friday that Dean may be in Texas. They believed he was heading to the United States and Mexican Border. He was stopped in a Dodge Durango going south on Highway 77.
The manhunt for Dean began Monday. He is accused of shooting several rounds from a rifle at Officer Kevin McCormick during a routine traffic stop. The hunt spread to Omaha, but he wasn't found during a 90-minute search.
McCormick, who was shot in the forehead, is expected to make a full recovery.
