Manhunt launched after officer killed in Missouri

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

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says authorities are looking for a man who shot and killed a western Missouri police officer during a traffic stop. The suspect reportedly fled in the Nitro, which was found two blocks away. Lowe said authorities believe he is still on foot somewhere in the Clinton area. Authorities did not know whether he was wounded.

The Missouri Highway Patrol is looking for Ian McCarthy, 39, who they say is the registered owner of the vehicle involved in the stop.
