The Missouri Highway Patrol is still searching for a man wanted in the murder of a Missouri police officer, The Kansas City Star reported Tuesday.

"We're following up any leads," Sgt. Bill Lowe told reporters in Chilhowee earlier Tuesday where officers had surrounded a home. "Any lead we get is a good lead until we deem that it didn't work out."

Ian James McCarthy, 39, allegedly shot officer Gary Michael, 37, late Sunday during a traffic stop and fled in his SUV before crashing it a few blocks away. He then abandoned the vehicle and escaped on foot.

"We've searched a school, we've searched buses, we've searched wooded areas, we've searched another home in Clinton," Lowe said. "This is no different. We're doing everything we can to find him."

Michael, who had been with the Clinton Police Department for less than a year, was shot in the chest with what was described as a "long gun." Police afterward found a .223 rifle casing on the seat of McCarthy's SUV.
