2nd man arrested in officer's shooting death

Police records say a man charged with supplying the weapon used to kill a western Missouri police officer admitted that he bought the rifle for the suspect and threw it in a creek after the shooting.

Michael, 37, was shot to death late Sunday night after stopping a motorist for driving without headlights.

Ian McCarthy, the man with a long criminal history in New Hampshire who is accused of shooting to death a Clinton, Mo., police officer, will plead innocent to the charges today, according to his public defender. Lowe said McCarthy, 39, was suffering from a gunshot wound when a patrol trooper arrested him.

He also was wanted at the time of his arrest on a warrant out of Johnson County, Missouri, issued in 2015 for unlawful possession of a firearm. They say there were three weapons upstairs and a gun safe downstairs.

At that point, police claim Noble 'acted visibly upset and faked crying'. He said he told his wife he needed to take out the trash and instead drove to a creek about 2 miles (3.5 kilometers) north of Clinton, where he threw it into the water. Noble provided police a written statement about selling the firearm to McCarthy. Police say they told Noble that he already knew the answer to that question.

Police say Noble asked what type of weapon was used in the murder of Michael.

As the officers were getting ready to leave, one of them asked Noble if he knew where the gun was.

Noble told the officers he "panicked" when he returned home on Monday - the day after the shooting - and found the rifle leaning against an inside doorway, the statement said. He then went with officers to the intersection of NW 300th Road and NW 131st Road.

Officers from across the state escorted Michael's body into the Vansant-Mills Funeral Home. He faces up to four years in prison.

Investigators have said it's possible that other people helped McCarthy by giving him a ride or clothes.

Noble is now being held in the Henry County Jail on a $25,000 cash bond. The bullets that hit Michael ultimately killed him.
