Man charged for throwing rifle into water used in deadly shooting

12 August 2017

Two men have pleaded not guilty for their suspected roles in the killing of a western Missouri police officer.

Investigators say they have found a rifle believed to have been used in last weekend's shooting death of a Clinton police officer. McCarthy's next appearance will be in October.

Officer Michael made a traffic stop on a vehicle for a registration violation. The suspect drove a few blocks before crashing the vehicle and fleeing on foot. Michael was able to return fire.

The driver reported seeing McCarthy walking along a state highway near Bucksaw Marina, just east of Clinton, and he was arrested without incident late Tuesday, Lowe said. His visitation was scheduled in Clinton Friday and the funeral will be Saturday.

William Noble, 35, has been charged with tampering with evidence in felony prosecution.

"Noble acted like he was visibly upset and faked crying", according to the affidavit.

The officer says: "I asked him why he was fake crying and he said he had sold the firearm to McCarthy". He said he did so because McCarthy was from out of state.

In 2001, McCarthy was convicted for stabbing a minor in Manchester.

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's accused of throwing the rifle used in Michael's death into a body of water, where it was recovered.

Noble saw the safe was damaged, began acting "suspicious", and asked what type of gun was used in the murder. Lowe said McCarthy, 39, was suffering from a gunshot wound when a patrol trooper arrested him.

McCarthy didn't appear to have many friends in Clinton, according to his neighbors and landlord.

However, police say McCarthy then changed his story and admitted he purchased the firearm for McCarthy. He did not appear to have a job since arriving in Clinton about four years ago to visit a friend he met while playing video games on line.
