SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Officials say a man suspected of shooting a Sioux City police officer remains in critical condition at an Omaha hospital.

Jenny Nowatzke, a spokeswoman at the Nebraska Medical Center, says Noah Ironshell was listed in critical condition as of 5:50 p.m. Thursday.

Rose Ironshell tells the Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/10WRyXg ) her nephew is clinically unresponsive. She did not elaborate.

Authorities say Noah Ironshell shot Officer Jill Ohm on Friday as she responded to a Sioux City house about a disturbance and a person who might be suicidal. He is accused of shooting her in the chin.

Ohm was taken to a hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Ironshell was later found in the basement of an abandoned home with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
