  • MSHP says they are looking for Ian McCarthy 39 of Clinton MO as a person of interest in the case

The shooting happened about 10:45 p.m. Sunday when Michael stopped McCarthy in Clinton over an alleged registration violation, Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe said. Although fatally wounded, Michael was able to return fire. McCarthy fled the scene in the vehicle and crashed about three blocks later.

A manhunt was underway in Missouri Monday for a person of interest in the fatal shooting of a police officer.

The Missouri Highway Patrol was looking for Ian McCarthy, 39, of Clinton.

The slain officer had been with the department less than a year.

Officer Michael was taken to a local hospital where he died, according to Lowe.

"(Michael) was heroic right to the end", Lowe added.

Authorities were searching for McCarthy Monday in the Clinton area, about 75 miles (120 kilometers) southeast of Kansas City. He was protecting his community, ' he said.

Blast Reported at Minnesota Islamic Center
Fire and smoke engulfed much of the red-brick structure, but there were no injuries. The Department of Homeland Security is also keeping an eye on the investigation.

As Michael exited his patrol vehicle, McCarthy also got out of the Dodge Nitro and allegedly fired a shot at Michael, striking him, Lowe said.

Michael was a lifelong resident of Clinton and leaves behind a wife and stepsons.

Radio dispatch audio offers insight into the chaos that followed the fatal shooting of Clinton, Missouri, police Officer Gary Michael.

A "routine traffic stop" is a misnomer, Lowe said. We don't know the individuals in the vehicle, ' Lowe said. Every traffic stop yields its own issues sometimes.

"He has already made one killing and decided that's in his mindset", Lowe told The Kansas City Star.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of McCarthy should contact law enforcement, call 911 or dial *55 on a cell phone.
