SIOUX CITY, Iowa — Eight people have been accused of helping a man flee Sioux City after he shot a police officer.

The federal grand jury indictments charge the eight with various crimes and all are charged with conspiracy to obstruct or interfere with governmental functions.

Jamal Dean, the man convicted of shooting officer Kevin McCormick, fled Sioux City after the April 29, 2013, shooting. He was arrested five days later during a traffic stop in Riviera, Texas, 105 miles from the Mexican border.

Although McCormick's police vehicle was riddled with bullets and he was shot in the head, he wasn't seriously injured. He's returned to work.

Dean later pleaded guilty to attempted murder and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
