UPDATE: Dean pleads not guilty to charges connected to officer shooting

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

For the first time, the man accused of shooting a Sioux City police officer has had his chance to address the charges against him.

In court, Friday, Jamal Dean told a judge he's not guilty of five charges related to the shooting of officer Kevin McCormick more than two weeks ago. It happened during a routine traffic stop on the city's west side.

The shooting sparked a five-day manhunt, which lead authorities to Texas, where Dean was caught just 100 miles from the U-S-Mexico border.

Of the five charges Dean faces, attempted murder is the most serious. He also faces charges assault causing serious injury, assault on a peace officer, willful injury, and going armed with intent.

Dean waived his right to a speedy trial.

His trial is set to start August 6th.
