Reward Offered for Dean Apprehension

Updated May 2, 2013 – A reward up to $15,000 is being offered for information that leads to the immediate apprehension of Jamal Dean, who is wanted for attempting to murder a Sioux City Police Officer.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms has offered an additional $5,000 to the $10,000 reward announced Wednesday that the United States Marshal Service, Crime Stoppers, and numerous other anonymous contributors have already promised, said Doug Young, chief of the Sioux City Police Department.

Dean has warrants for his arrest in connection to the April 29 shooting of Sioux City Police Officer Kevin McCormick.

McCormick stopped a car that Dean was a passenger in when Dean stepped out of the car and fired upon the officer.

McCormick was treated for a gunshot wound to his head and has been released from a local hospital.

Dean fled the area after the shooting and remains at large.

“Dean is dangerous and is a threat to public safety,” said Chief Young.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Dean should call 712-279-6960.

Dean is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached by the public.
