ORLANDO, Fla. - Local agencies all across Central Florida are sending their condolences to the Orlando Police Department and Orange County Sheriff's Office.
Monday morning an Orlando Police Department officer was shot and killed at a Walmart in Orlando. The officer was identified as Master Sgt. Debra Clayton.
A massive manhunt is underway for the suspect, Markeith Loyd. Loyd is known to law enforcement officers after he was wanted for the death of a pregnant female back in December.
