HAINES CITY - The Haines City Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding the man accused of shooting and killing an Orlando police officer. Markeith Loyd, 41, who may have family in the Haines City area, is accused of shooting Master Sgt. Debra Clayton of the Orlando Police Department on Monday when she stopped to ask him a question at a Wal-Mart in Orange County, reports said. Orlando law enforcement has launched manhunts across Central Florida in an attempt to locate Loyd.
Loyd is a convicted felon and has been arrested in Orange County 20 times since 1994, court records said. In 1998, he was accused of punching an Orlando police officer in the eye and ripping his shirt while fleeing during a drug investigation. Years later, while serving a federal prison sentence in California, he was accused of striking a correctional officer. In 2010, he was accused of assaulting another corrections officer in West Virginia, and having two shanks, which resulted in an additional 27 months on his sentence Loyd frequented a strip club in Pine Hills, where he posted a Facebook Live video hours before he allegedly killed Dixon. Police said Loyd was wearing a shirt with the word “security” sprawled across the back when he was approached by Clayton. Ray also found a Facebook post by Loyd from a couple months ago which read, “Goals—to be on America’s Most Wanted.”
