Share

Orlando police Chief John Mina said the U.S. Marshals Service has added Markeith Loyd to its top 15 most-wanted fugitives list.

Markeith Lloyd was taken into custody, Orlando Police tweeted.

Loyd had been on the run for more than a week.

Police said Loyd is believed to have been wearing a bulletproof vest as he stood over Clayton and shot her to death.

Loyd, 41, had been sought in connection with the shooting deaths on December 13 of Sade Dixon, 24, a mother of two who was three months pregnant, and of Orlando police Master Sgt. Debra Clayton during a confrontation on January 9.

Goodell, per Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, actually hasn't attended a Patriots home game since the entire thing went down. Goodell spent this past weekend in Atlanta for the NFC divisional match between the Falcons and Seahawks.

Clayton was able to return fire, but Mina said there's no indication that Loyd was injured.

"Overnight, we had several additional tips come in that look promising to us, so we're still very very much focused on bringing to justice this individual", Demings said. "We are continuing to follow up on every single lead", Mina said.

As people in the community continue to pay their respects to Clayton, they are hopeful that the man suspected of gunning her down will soon be off the streets.

Police say Loyd may have changed his appearance since last week. "We have A-teams in place ready to go should we have a tip where he is". "It's only a matter of time", Mina added. Additional details about his capture were not immediately available.

Among them was sheriff's Deputy First Class Norman Lewis, who died when he was thrown from his motorcycle in an accident.
