Authorities say he threw the rifle into water, where it was discovered.

As they walked to the safe, they say Noble began 'acting very suspicious'.

At that point, police claim Noble 'acted visibly upset and faked crying'.

McCarthy has been charged with one count of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Gary Michael and with one count of armed criminal action, the Henry County prosecutor's office said Monday.

However, police say McCarthy then changed his story and admitted he purchased the firearm for McCarthy.

The affidavit did not say why officers wanted to talk to him, but they told him they wanted to see guns he owned.

Ian James McCarthy, 39, of Clinton, Missouri, was arrested Tuesday without incident after a driver reported that a man was walking on a highway in Henry County, Sgt. Bill Lowe of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said at a news conference.

Police say Officer Michael shot and injured McCarthy during their exchange of gunfire that ultimately killed Michael. Noble told police the day he bought the gun, he gave it to McCarthy. He took the two officers to the creek Thursday, where they recovered a rifle that "meets the description and appears to me to be the weapon used in the murder", according to the probable cause statement.

"Noble said he panicked, told his wife he needed to take out the trash, took the gun and drove north of town", according to the affidavit.

Lowe says the relationship between McCarthy and Noble is unclear. The detectives asked against and Noble allegedly said he did know where the gun was.

An officer walked to the edge of the water near NW 300th Road and NW 131st Road and spotted the stock of a weapon under water. As Officer Michael exited the patrol vehicle to make contact with McCarthy, he's accused of firing a round towards the officer, fatally striking him.
