A citizen's tip led to the arrest last night of a man wanted for killing a Missouri police officer during a traffic stop, authorities said.

The emails center around Lynch's meeting with Clinton on the tarmac of the Phoenix airport in June 2016. But she did say that she realized that the meeting could be interpreted as a conflict of interest.

More than 100 local, county and state law enforcement officers have been searching possible hiding spots for McCarthy. As Michael got out of his patrol auto, it is believed McCarthy also got out of his vehicle with a gun and shot the officer, said Sgt. Bill Lowe of the Highway Patrol. Lowe said he is in stable condition. He also is wanted on a warrant out of Johnson County, Missouri, in 2015 for unlawful possession of a firearm. He then got out of his auto and fired shots at the officer, killing him, Lowe said.

Court records say a warrant was issued for McCarthy in New Hampshire in October 2013 after he failed to appear for sentencing for a disorderly conduct charge.

Michael returned fire, but it is unknown if McCarthy was hit. The footage later shows McCarthy driving away in a Dodge Nitro before a Clinton officer in an SUV activates his lights to pull over McCarthy, Martin wrote. He was transported to a hospital in Kansas City. He had suffered a gunshot wound believed to have been fired by the officer who was killed, Clinton police officer Gary Michael, Lowe said. He was a military police officer overseas for about five years before returning to the Kansas City area.
