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.
