2nd man arrested in Mo. officer's death, faces tampering charge

Posted August 12, 2017

Prosecutors say McCarthy jumped out of his vehicle and fired at the officer before driving a few blocks, crashing the auto and fleeing on foot. Michael was able to return fire.

McCarthy was arrested Tuesday after bystanders spotted him walking on a highway with a gunshot wound. 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 driver was struck.

Visitation will be held Friday from 6 pm to 9pm at the funeral home in Clinton.

The charge alleges that Noble threw the rifle used in the murder of Officer Michael into a body of water North of Clinton, knowing that it had been used in the crime and with the intent to hide it from investigators. He said he did so because McCarthy was from out of state.

The Swiss currency was little changed against the dollar at 0.9637 franc after surging more than 1 percent the previous day. The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index lost 0.75 per cent and MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe shed 0.40 per cent.

An active warrant was also issued for his arrest in 2011 on charges of being a felon in possession of a risky weapon, reckless conduct and disorderly conduct. As a convicted felon, McCarthy could not legally own a firearm.

Police say Noble took them to the intersection of NW 300th Road and NW 131st Road, north of the Clinton city limits.

The Henry County prosecutor says that Noble knew the rifle was used in a crime and attempted to hide it. He took the two officers to the creek Thursday, where they recovered a rifle that "meets the description and appears to me to be the weapon used in the murder", according to the probable cause statement.

The documents say Noble asked police what type of weapon was used in the murder and police told him he knew the answer to that question.
