Manhunt continues for cop killer in Florida

Orlando Police Launch Manhunt After Cop Killed in Shooting

Police are seeking Markeith Loyd in the murder of a pregnant woman named Sade Dixon last month.

A massive manhunt is underway in central Florida as authorities searched for a man accused of shooting and killing an Orlando police officer.

The additional law enforcement death was an Orange County motorcycle deputy who was working on a dragnet trying to capture Loyd, authorities said.

The Orlando Police Department identified the victim as Master Sgt. Debra Clayton, who was a 17-year veteran of the force and a mother of two, according to officials.

Orange County sheriff's Deputy Norman Lewis, 35, was killed in a crash during a manhunt for Loyd, who remains on the run.

The shooting happened early Monday morning after Clayton had received word that Loyd was in the area near a local Walmart.

Clayton is survived by her husband and two children, said Mina. Fellow officers and the community remembered her for her volunteer work with Orlando youth.

According to the Orlando police, Clayton was shot and killed when she found Loyd in the parking lot of a Walmart at the corner of Princeton Street and John Young Parkway.

"The Orlando Police Department family is heartbroken today".

Herman also said the man wore a security shirt, but Mina said the suspect was not a security guard. "Trust me on that", Mina said.

"They are imperiling themselves, because he's a unsafe individual, and we certainly want to be able to peacefully take him into custody, but if we're not able to do that, you don't want to be anywhere around that", he said.

The deaths of Clayton and the unidentified Orange County sheriff's deputy mark the second and third on-duty law enforcement officer deaths of 2017.

Orlando police say the officer who was shot while on duty has died.

Police are offering a $60,000 reward for information that leads to the whereabouts of Markeith Loyd. He's also accused of injuring Dixon's brother.

Mina said officers believed they knew where Loyd was.

"There's no message for him other than "justice will be served".

Several law enforcement officers swarmed the area, and Orlando police said motorists should avoid the area.

Media reported that the officer was shot multiple times outside a Walmart store on Monday morning. Sgt. Clayton also recently celebrated the one-year wedding anniversary with her husband.
