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.
