MHP: Missouri officer dead, massive manhunt underway for accused murderer

Henry County deputies, Missouri state troopers and the Clinton Police Department set up roadblocks around the area, saying they believe McCarthy is still in Clinton.

Police have searched McCarthy's home and the surrounding area, Lowe said.

A Missouri police officer was shot and killed late Sunday during a traffic stop, and the suspect is still at large.

When Michael exited his vehicle to initiate contact with the driver, he was shot, Lowe said, adding that the officer fired back but it's unknown at this time whether the suspect was struck. He approached McCarthy on Sunday night at 10.45pm at an intersection on Missouri 13 in Clinton, Missouri, for a registration violation. Sgt. Bill Lowe of the Missouri Highway Patrol told Fox News that McCarthy then fled on foot.

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

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders referred CNN to Trump's outside counsel for a response to the report . The Washington Post first reported on Monday night the news that the president had dictated the messaging.

Michael returned fire, but McCarthy managed to get back into his vehicle and drive away, crashing the auto just two blocks west, officials said. 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.

Sergeant Martin said Mr. McCarthy's auto was found abandoned a short distance from the scene of the shooting after it hit an embankment.

Mr Michael was a lifelong resident of Clinton.

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

The Kansas City Star reports that McCarthy was allegedly driving a Dodge Nitro. "He was doing his job, you know, he was there protecting and serving and that's what we're called to do, and he did it with heroic fashion".
