Manhunt for suspect continues in Clinton, MO after officer shot, killed

Ian McCarthy 39 is a person of interest in the fatal shooting of Clinton Mo. Police Officer Gary Michael

The suspect, 39-year-old Ian McCarthy, reportedly has ties to New England and is wanted in Manchester, New Hampshire, on a previous assault charge. The gunman returned to his vehicle and attempted to drive away before crashing nearby.

The Clinton police department also had little involvement with McCarthy and there is no evidence that he knew Michael. From the site of the crash, the driver fled on foot, Lowe said.

Michael was rushed to a local hospital, where he passed away from his injuries. He decided in his 30s to become a police officer and served in Appleton City for a short time before joining the force in Clinton.

The Clinton Police Department has no body camera policy, but police were working Monday morning to determine if there was dashcam video from Michael's auto or surveillance video from nearby businesses, Lowe said.

The shooting unfurled in downtown Clinton, nearly a few government structures, including the Henry County courthouse, library and sheriff's office. "He was protecting his community". Lowe said the search area is roughly a ten block radius extending out side the city limits into the county. "He was not in that house". He then got out of his vehicle and fired shots at the officer, killing him, Lowe said. The search all the more hard because few people in the Clinton area know McCarthy and he has no immediate family there, Lowe said.

About 30 law enforcement agencies in counties surrounding Clinton are augmenting officers from Clinton, Henry County and the patrol.

The public is advised against making contact with McCarthy, who is considered armed and unsafe. Authorities were searching for McCarthy in the Clinton area, about 75 miles southeast of Kansas City.

Trump might sanction China to get them to pressure North Korea
This morning, China said the USA should not link trade to discussions about North Korea's nuclear programme. It is unlikely that Trump's tweets are going to persuade the Chinese to act.

"He has already made one killing and decided that's in his mindset", Lowe said.

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".

"He needs to be apprehended before he harms anyone else", Lowe said.

The U.S. Secret Service took to social media to offer condolences for the fallen officer.

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

The suspect, 39-year-old Ian McCarthy, remains on the loose but has been charged with first-degree murder.
