Supporting Heroes shared The Missouri Law Enforcement Funeral Assistance Team's live video.

We regret to announce that another police officer has fallen in the line-of-duty from a senseless act of violence. Just before 11:00 P.M. (Central) Sunday evening, Clinton (MO) Police Officer Gary Michael made a traffic stop for what is believed to have been 'improper registration.' It is believed that the suspect immediately exited his vehicle and opened fire. Officer Michael was hit, but he was able to return fire. Officer Michael succumbed to his injuries a short time later. At this time, a manhunt is still underway for the suspect. Officer Michael was 37 years old and served with the Clinton Police Department for under one year. He is survived by his wife and two children.
