Orange County Deputy First Class Normal Lewis was also killed in a car crash as he was responding to the shooting scene. The deputy was hit while riding on Pine Hills Road and Balboa Drive around 11 a.m. when a driver turned into the oncoming path of his motorcycle.

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. Loyd then carjacked a vehicle, and was seen by a captain from the Orange County Sheriff's Office. The captain was shot as he got behind the vehicle Loyd was driving.

OPD posted on Twitter a video of Clayton's casket leaving the hospital.

The Orlando Police Department family is heartbroken today. One of our own was taken in the line of duty. There are no words.

Loyd is also wanted in the December 13 murder of his pregnant girlfriend, according to WKMG. Loyd allegedly shot Sade Dixon, 24, a mother of two, as she opened the door for Loyd. Dixon's brother was also shot when he intervened to help her following the gunshots.

This is Deputy First Class Norman Lewis, an 11-year veteran of the Orange County Sheriff's Office who was killed in the line of duty today. Our thoughts are with the department and his family:


Master Sgt. Debra Clayton was with the Orlando Police Department for 17 years. She leaves behind one child. Our thoughts are with the department and her family.

Bloodied and beaten, Markeith is in jail now.  So far three other people have been arrested for helping him hide after he killed his pregnant girlfriend and after he killed the police officer who tried to arrest him for the first murders. Orlando police said to expect more arrests now that Markeith is in custody. 

Josh props this
