2nd man arrested in officer's shooting death

Police records say a man who is charged with supplying the weapon used to kill a western Missouri police officer admitted that he bought the rifle for the suspect and threw it in a creek after the shooting. He agreed to show them the firearms he had at his house in the 500 block of N. Main Street in Clinton.

Officer Michael leaves behind a wife, three children and a grandchild.

Noble saw the safe was damaged, began acting "suspicious", and asked what type of gun was used in the murder.

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

They then went outside and Noble provided a written statement to that effect.

The patrol said it was thrilled McCarthy was in custody and that hopefully McCarthy's capture could provide some relief to the area's citizens.

Shields claims Noble knew the weapon had been used in the crime. Then hiding it while McCarthy was on the run for two days.

"Noble stared at me for about a minute, blankly looking straight through me", the trooper wrote.

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.

The prosecutor said he's considering more charges against Noble and whether to seek the death penalty against McCarthy.

The investigation is continuing and could result in charges against other individuals.

39-year-old Ian McCarthy's been charged with First Degree Murder for the shooting, which carries a possible death sentence.
