ORLANDO -- (WKMG) -- A massive manhunt continues Tuesday after an Orlando police officer was shot and killed, and an Orange County sheriff's deputy died in a crash as he helped search for the gunman.
The fugitive, identified at Markeith Loyd, is considered "armed and extremely dangerous."
Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings told News 6 Tuesday morning that it's believed that Loyd is still in the Orlando area. Demings said authorities are not necessarily focused on a specific location, but he assured the public that Loyd will be found.
Hundreds of law enforcement officers have been hunting for him since Orlando police Master Sgt. Debra Clayton, 42, was shot Monday outside the Walmart at Princeton Street and John Young Parkway.
