1/9/2017 - Murder of Orlando Police Officer

Orlando was gripped in a frantic and deadly manhunt on Monday after police said a wanted murder suspect with a long rap sheet shot and killed a police officer outside a Walmart before escaping the scene, armed and dangerous.

The suspect, identified as Markeith Loyd, was accused of murdering his pregnant ex-girlfriend last month, Fox 35 reported. He had been arrested 20 times in Orange County since 1994, according to court records.

Amid the manhunt, a motorcycle crash killed an Orange County deputy sheriff searching for the suspect, the sheriff announced.

"We`re going to bring this dirtbag to justice," Orlando Police Chief John Mina told reporters. "There`s going to be someone who knows where he is.

Police said the officer killed was Master Sgt. Debra Clayton, a 17-year veteran of the force and mother of two, married for one year.

Loyd was wearing a security uniform at the time of Monday`s shooting, a witness told WFTV.

Loyd had been on the run since Dec. 13 when police accused him of shooting and killing 24-year-old Sade Dixon, a pregnant mother of two, and critically wounding her brother, Ronald Steward, outside her home. Dixon`s surviving relatives told Fox 35 she had just broken up with Loyd.

The Orange County Sheriff`s Office stated the suspect`s age as 41, but the Orlando Sentenel reported it as 43. Prosecutors reportedly had dropped drug-dealing charges against him earlier.

Herman said a shopper had tipped off the officer -- who was putting bags in the trunk of her vehicle -- that Loyd was in the Walmart waiting to check out. As the officer walked towards the store, the suspect barged out and fired at least 12 shots, according to Herman. Three shots hit the officer, WFTV reported.

After deputies launched the manhunt, the suspect pulled into a nearby apartment complex and fired shots, hitting one deputy`s unmarked SUV twice before carjacking another vehicle and escaping, Fox 35 added. Nobody was reported hurt at the apartment complex.

The search also led police to the Pine Hills area a few miles west of Orlando.

City Commissioner Regina Hill identified the officer as her Orlando Police Dept. liaison. The officer`s heart briefly stopped while paramedics were racing her to Orlando Regional Medical Center, rescuers said.

Officials locked down more than a dozen schools in the area, and closed the Walmart. Evidence markers were spotted in the store`s parking lot.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer declared a day of mourning. Students and staff in the locked-down schools were safe, Fox 35 added.

1/9/2017 - Burglary, Rapture Guns, 8216 US 98 North, Lakeland

Someone knows who did this - and Heartland Crime Stoppers will pay for that information - up to $3,000! Help us get these guns off the street!

PCSO Detectives are investigating a smash-n-grab style burglary that occurred during the early morning hours today (Monday, January 9, 2017) at the Rapture Guns and Knives store located at 8216 US Hwy 98 North in Lakeland. Preliminary information so far is as follows:

At 1:42 a.m., PCSO received a call for service in response to an alarm activated at the store. PCSO deputies responded to the store in under three minutes, and found the store had been burglarized.

The investigation revealed that at 1:33 a.m., the suspects, as seen on video surveillance, used a tool to dismantle the front door lock, then entered the store and used a hammer and their feet and hands to smash the front glass case. Both suspects stuffed 76 firearms into large bags and then fled the scene at just before 1:35 a.m. in an unknown make or model car, heading south on US Hwy 98.

The alarm was activated at the time that the front door was breached, however, several minutes passed before the notification from the alarm company was sent to law enforcement, and PCSO did not receive the call for service until after the suspects had already fled the scene.

“Alarm systems alone are not adequate deterrents, or adequate security, at gun stores. We’ve reached out to all of the gun store owners in the county and discussed the importance of having robust security systems in place. In fact, on December 13, 2016, our detectives went to the Rapture Guns and Knives store, and spoke with the owner about installing security features at his business. He told our detectives that ‘safes are too expensive’ and ‘they’ll just cut the cables’ if he installed those. Gun store owners have a moral and ethical obligation to do everything they can to prevent guns from getting into the hands of criminals.” – Grady Judd, Sheriff

Heartland Crime Stoppers is offering a $3,000 CASH REWARD for information leading to the arrests of these suspects.
