Manhunt underway after Missouri police officer shot dead during traffic stop

Michael returned fire, but it was unknown if McCarthy was hit. The suspect then exited his vehicle again and fled on foot.

Michael, who had worked for the Clinton Police Department less than a year, died in the shootout, KSHB reported. 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. Authorities did not know whether he was wounded.

Authorities identified the suspect as 39-year-old Ian McCarthy from Clinton.

Sergeant Bill Lowe of the Missouri Highway Patrol told 41 Action News the traffic stop was in regard to a registration violation.

Michael had only been on the force for one year. Emergency officials transported Michael, 37, to a hospital where he was declared dead.

"(Michael) was heroic right to the end", Lowe added. He was protecting his community, ' he said. Police officers are always mindful that something bad could happen.

He is considered armed and unsafe.

Michael was a lifelong resident of Clinton and leaves behind a wife and stepsons. Every traffic stop yields its own issues sometimes.

"We want to make sure we are diligent in finding where he is", Lowe said.

'He has already made one killing and decided that's in his mindset.

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

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