Missouri police officer killed during traffic stop, suspect sought

About 100 local, county and state law enforcement officers have been looking for Ian McCarthy since late Sunday, when he is believed to have shot Clinton police officer Gary Michael, who had stopped his vehicle, apparently for a registration violation.

As Michael exited his vehicle in downtown Clinton, the alleged shooter also got out of his auto and fired once at the officer before fleeing the scene and crashing his vehicle into an embankment about four blocks away, Lowe said.

Officials say Gary Michael stopped McCarthy in a 2008 Dodge Nitro on Missouri 13 about 10:45 p.m. Sunday for a registration violation. The patrol said a suspect was able to flee the scene on foot, and as of right now his location is unknown.

"It's a tragedy obviously for his family, it's a tragedy for Clinton Police Department, but it's a tragedy for this community", Lowe said.

Michael was in his first year with the Clinton police department, and leaves behind a wife and step sons, according to FOX 4.

A manhunt was underway for the McCarthy.

Lowe says the driver of a Dodge Nitro believed to be 39-year-old Ian McCarthy got out of the vehicle during the traffic stop and started shooting. Federal agencies have made informal offers to help but have not officially joined the search, Lowe said. "We're doing everything we can to find him". By 6:30 a.m., officers had located the suspect vehicle, but the suspect remained on the run.

A "routine traffic stop" is a misnomer, Lowe said. He said his brother took a few different paths after leaving the military, but always felt the call to serve. "We don't know the individuals in the auto". Law enforcement officials believe McCarthy, a former convict, is armed and risky and still in the state.

Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri issued a statement: "Our law enforcement personnel put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe, not knowing what danger they may face or whether they will make it home".

Court records indicate McCarthy pleaded guilty in November 2013 in Missouri to a misdemeanor driving without a valid license.

Members of the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Division of Drug and Crime Control, the Clinton Police Department, and the Henry County Sheriff's Office continue to investigate. "He needs to be apprehended before he harms anyone else". Local law enforcement has set up checkpoints across and around Clinton.
