Sioux City Officer Returns To Area Where He Was Shot
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) Sioux City police officer Kevin McCormick is back on duty and has already visited the spot where he was wounded during a traffic stop.
Sioux City station KTIV says McCormick retraced his route on the west side of the city on Sunday, remembering the garbage cans and chain-link fence and the van he saw on April 29. McCormick says he's been replaying the incident in his mind.
He'd pulled over a car for a seat belt violation. As he was preparing to leave his cruiser, a man got out of the car and fired eight rifle shots at the cruiser. A bullet that penetrated the cruiser's windshield struck McCormick above an eye.
Twenty-one-year-old Jamal Dean has been arrested and is being held on a charge of attempted murder.
