Levon Dean, Jamal Dean's brother, is being held at the Woodbury County Jail and made a plea Friday morning with his Dad, Lee Dean.

Levon is asking 21-year-old Jamal Dean to turn himself in.

Jamal is accused of opening fire on the patrol car of Sioux City Police Officer Kevin McCormick during a routine traffic stop on Monday.

McCormick suffered a bullet wound to the head.

He's been released from the hospital and is expected to fully recover.

A $15,000 reward has been offered for information leading to Jamal's capture.

Detective Jeremy McClure says any tip that leads to his arrest will remain anonymous.

He also says, anyone caught aiding and abetting Dean, after he's caught could be prosecuted.

Levon was arrested on Monday night.

Police say the two brothers have been involved in several armed rip-offs of drug dealers.

Levon faces charges of robbery, burglary and theft.

His next court appearance is next Friday.

Hear from Levon and Lee, courtesy George Lindblade, on News 4 at 5, 6, and 10.
