(SL) – The week long search for Markeith Damengzlo Loyd is over. Orlando Police announced his capture about an hour ago. Reportedly, Loyd’s face was mangled as he implied that he had been beaten by officers.
Loyd has been the focus of a week long manhunt since Master Sgt. Debra Clayton was killed in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Before the Jan. 9 shooting, authorities had been looking for Loyd for questioning in the death of his pregnant ex-girlfriend last month.
The sergeant had been tipped off that Loyd was in the area while she was at the store. She was shot when she approached Loyd, who then fled.
The U.S. Marshals Service had added Loyd to its list of most wanted fugitives Tuesday.
