The hunt for Jamal Dean has spread to Omaha.

Thursday night, officers surrounded a block near downtown Omaha, but Dean wasn't found during a 90-minute search.

Meanwhile, the reward for information leading to the arrest of the man accused of shooting a Sioux City police officer has increased to $15,000.

Dean is accused of opening fire on Officer Kevin McCormick's patrol car on Monday.

McCormick suffered a bullet wound to the head, but is expected to fully recover.

Dean, a known gang member, faces a charge of attempted murder.

Police say they've received more than 100 tips so far and are relying on the public's help.

"If they know where Jamal Dean is at, call in, if they know someone who is hiding him, call in. If they've got actual information to where is at or who is hiding him, please call right away, call 911 if you think you've seen him or know where he is at," Detective Jeremy McClure said.

Jamal Dean is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

He's six-foot-one and 230 pounds.

Dean has the word "outlaw" tattooed on his neck.

If you have information, call police or Crimestoppers at 258-tips.
