He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on charges of first degree murder and armed criminal action.

Noble allegedly pointed to the water and told police that's where he threw it. Police say they could see the stock of the weapon under the water.

The affidavit does not say what type of weapon it is or when he bought it. Police say they told Noble that he already knew the answer to that question. Noble began to act "visibly upset and faked crying".

The officer says: "I asked him why he was fake crying and he said he had sold the firearm to McCarthy". However, he then changed the story and admitted he bought the gun for McCarthy because he was asked to.

Noble told the officers he "panicked" when he returned home on Monday - the day after the shooting - and found the rifle leaning against an inside doorway, the statement said.

As the officers were getting ready to leave, one of them asked Noble if he knew where the gun was.

On Thursday, the officers drove him to the location outside the city and found the gun in water near the intersection of NW 300th and NW 131st roads. Police say the rifle meets the description and appears to be the weapon used in the murder.

Noble is charged with a class E felony, which carries a penalty of up to four years in prison.

The Court has issued a warrant with a bond of $25,000 cash only.

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.

Authorities say he shot and killed Michael Sunday night during a traffic stop.

Michael's funeral will be held Saturday August 12, 2017 at 11:00am at Benson Convention Center in Clinton. 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.
