An attorney says a man arrested in Texas in connection with the shooting of an Iowa police officer won't fight extradition back to Iowa.
The attorney for Jamal Dean said Dean told a judge in Corpus Christi, Texas, on Wednesday that he would waive proceedings.
Dean was arrested Saturday in Riviera, Texas. The 21-year-old was wanted on a warrant that listed attempted murder. Dean 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.
Woodbury County Sheriff Dave Drew says experienced deputies will go to Texas, take charge of Dean and bring him back to Sioux City.
