The manhunt for Ian McCarthy, who police say fatally shot a rookie police officer at a Missouri traffic stop is over, police announced Tuesday night.
McCarthy is in jail and being held without bond, accused of murdering Officer Michael at about 10:45 p.m. Sunday, August 6th.
McCarthy fled the scene in a vehicle but crashed two blocks from the scene of the shooting.
Bill Lowe said William Noble, 35, of Clinton was taken into custody Thursday and charged with felony tampering with evidence. Police say Noble acted like he was visibly upset and faked crying. He eventually changed his story and acknowledged that McCarthy asked him to buy the rifle for him.

Severe thunderstorm watch (again)

Police say Noble asked what type of weapon was used in the murder of Michael. He said he panicked, told his wife he was taking the trash out, and drove north out of town with the gun.
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. He lived off $2,000 a month from a trust fund set up by his deceased grandfather, according to his landlord, Ed Hannah. Hannah called McCarthy an "odd duck". Hannah said McCarthy skipped some job interviews and apparently had never been employed.
Next-door neighbors said they mostly saw McCarthy when he let out his dogs - Minion and Nibbler - whom he doted on. It's unknown what connection McCarthy has to Noble. One neighbor, Whitney Julian, said McCarthy had a temper and once went "berserk" when heavy machinery woke him up.
