Officer Michael was shot and killed at approximately 10:45 Sunday evening during a traffic stop near the intersection of East Green Street and North 2nd Street in Clinton. He had stopped the vehicle for 'improper registration.'

Once stopped, the driver immediately exited his vehicle and began firing. Although mortally wounded, Officer Michael was able to return fire. The suspect made it back to his vehicle and drove away. He then crashed just a few blocks west and fled on foot.

Officer Michael was transported to Golden Valley Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.
