Man admits buying rifle likely used to kill officer

Man admits buying rifle likely used to kill officer

Michael was gunned down during a traffic stop in Clinton late Sunday night.

The officer, Gary Michael, who was with the force less than a year, pulled over a suspicious vehicle around 10:45 p.m. on Sunday, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe.

Noble told police he threw the rifle into a body of water, and on Thursday led investigators to the site, according to an affidavit filed in Henry County Circuit Court.

Lowe could not specify how investigators came to find it. He's charged with first-degree murder and felony armed criminal action.

Henry County Prosecutor Richard Shields has charged 35-year-old William Grant Noble with felony tampering with evidence.

The officer says: "I asked him why he was fake crying and he said he had sold the firearm to McCarthy".

It might take a little bit of time before he can lead the line for Arsenal but playing just off he can be just as effective. Undermining Wenger's quest for harmony is the uncertainty surrounding several first-team players.

The suspect in the case, Ian McCarthy, was arrested after an alert driver provided a tip that the fugitive was wandering within miles of where the killing took place, a law enforcement official said.

The affidavit does not say what type of weapon it is or when he bought it. Noble told police the day he bought the gun, he gave it to McCarthy.

A $25,000 cash only bond has been requested. They say there were three weapons upstairs and a gun safe downstairs. Police say they told Noble that he already knew the answer to that question. He was unarmed when taken into custody about 20 miles away from the murder scene, police said.

Police asked Noble if he knew where the gun now was.

On Thursday, the officers drove him to the location outside the city and found the gun in water near the intersection of NW 300th and NW 131st roads.

Michael's funeral will be held Saturday August 12, 2017 at 11:00am at Benson Convention Center in Clinton. Investigators on Wednesday still were trying to retrace McCarthy's whereabouts during his two days on the run and determine if he had any help eluding authorities, Lowe said.
