News Briefs:

The hunt for a man suspected of shooting a police officer in northwest Iowa has spread to Omaha. Officers surrounded a block about a mile west of downtown Omaha on Thursday night, but Jamal Dean wasn't found during the 90-minute search. He's suspected of shooting Sioux City Police Officer Kevin McCormick. Authorities believe Dean has ties to the Omaha area. Police say McCormick pulled over a car on Monday afternoon in Sioux City. McCormick was still in his cruiser when a man stepped out of the car and opened fire with a rifle. McCormick was hit in the head by a bullet fragment. He's been released from a hospital. A $15,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the capture of Dean.

Lawmakers have passed a new sentencing range of 40 years to life for murders that were committed by a juvenile. The bill won final approval on Thursday, 38-1. The measure was introduced by Sen. Brad Ashford of Omaha in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that declared mandatory life-without-parole sentences for juveniles unconstitutional. The proposal represented a compromise between lawmakers who supported 30-year minimum sentence, and others who pushed for at least 60 years. It also allows judges to consider mitigating factors in a case, including a juvenile's maturity and efforts toward rehabilitation. The bill now goes to Gov. Dave Heineman.
