Manhunt in Missouri for Driver Who Fatally Shot Police Officer

The Missouri Highway Patrol identified the officer killed in the line of duty as officer Gary Michael, 37.

The auto 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. Police do not know if any of Michael's rounds struck McCarthy.

A manhunt is underway after a rookie police officer was shot and killed at a traffic stop in Clinton, Missouri, police said.

After Michael made the traffic stop and got out of his patrol vehicle, the driver got out of his auto and fired at the officer, who was able to return fire, Lowe said.

Left, 39-year-old suspect Ian McCarthy.

Mr Michael was reportedly able to return fire, but it is not known whether the driver was injured.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe said the officer's death was "devastating".

Ian McCarthy, 39, was named a person of interest in the shooting. According to KSHB, he has an active warrant for arrest in New Hampshire, where he has been charged for illegal weapon possession, disorderly conduct, and first-degree assault.

He is considered armed and unsafe. According to Fox News, authorities believe he is still near the Clinton area. Lowe says Michael was "heroic right to the end".

Mr Michael was a lifelong resident of Clinton. "He was protecting his community", he said.

The Kansas City Star reports that McCarthy was allegedly driving a Dodge Nitro.

Michael married his wife Cresinda in 2015, becoming a stepfather to her two sons.
