Clinton, Mo., police officer shot, killed during traffic stop; manhunt underway

Sergeant Bill Lowe of the Missouri Highway Patrol told KSHB the traffic stop was in regard to a registration violation.

Police said that after shooting Michael, the suspect fled in his vehicle, then crashed a few blocks away.

No gun was recovered from either the scene of the shooting or the crash, which leads the police to assume that the suspect is armed, according to Lowe. Authorities did not know whether he was wounded.

Ian McCarthy has been identified as a person of interest in that shooting.

The charges were filed Monday in Henry County against 39-year-old Ian McCarthy of Clinton, in the shooting death of Clinton police officer Gary Michael. Michael died from his injuries. Lowe says Michael was "heroic right to the end". He was protecting his community, ' he said. The vehicle was discovered around 6:30 a.m., but a search of the nearby area and a subsequent search of the suspect's home didn't turn up any leads.
