The suspect, 39-year-old Ian McCarthy has ties to New England and is wanted in Manchester, New Hampshire for a previous assault charge.
McCarthy has been on the run from Missouri State Police since Sunday night. Authorities say, the 39-year-old shot and killed Clinton, Missouri police officer Gary Michael.
Sunday night, Officer Michael pulled McCarthy over for a registration violation in Clinton, Missouri. Police say McCarthy fired at Michael and Michael fired back. McCarthy then took off, crashed his car and ran on foot. Officer Michael was taken to the hospital where he died.
New Hampshire state court records show McCarthy faced at least 20 counts from 1997-2011. The charges vary from traffic violations, to possession of a dangerous weapon and first-degree assault.
