Michael was shot during a traffic stop in Clinton.

After Michael made the traffic stop and got out of his patrol vehicle, the driver got out of his auto and fired at the officer, who was able to return fire, Lowe said. It was not clear if the driver was shot or injured in the crash.

Authorities say the driver began firing at Michael as he approached the vehicle.

McCarthy now faces charges for first-degree murder and felony armed criminal action in Henry County, where the city of Clinton is located. Sgt. Bill Lowe of the Missouri Highway Patrol told Fox News that McCarthy then fled on foot.

Lowe says the driver of a Dodge Nitro got out of the vehicle during the traffic stop and started shooting.

As of Monday morning, police were still searching for the suspect. Although fatally wounded, Michael was able to return fire.

No other details have been released at this time.
