ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - New evidence was released Wednesday in the case involving Markeith Loyd who is accused of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon and Orlando police Lt. Debra Clayton.
Clayton was shot to death Jan. 9 in a Walmart parking lot at Princeton and John Young Parkway by Loyd, investigators said.
Radio transmissions from Clayton were released where she told police that she realized Loyd was shopping inside the Walmart.
“I guess we’re looking for Markeith. He’s walking out the door right now. I guess he’s involved in a shooing with a pregnant female. I’m at the first entrance,” Clayton said.
Clayton told dispatch 19 seconds after her initial call that she had been shot, followed by three more shots can be heard on the radio transmission. WFTV has chosen not to air that call out of respect to Clayton’s family.
"Officer shot. Hurry up," an officer said.
Following transmissions outline officers life-saving measures for Clayton, as well as their search for Loyd.
If you’re not at the scene, you need to find an intersection. If someone is already there, find another one,” an officer said.
Law enforcement radioed four minutes after Clayton was shot that Loyd shot at an Orange County deputy.
Loyd was found a month later hiding out in a vacant home, police said.
It appears the night of his arrest, Loyd was on the phone with someone who told him not to surrender.
"He just got off and he told (inaudible) is trying to convince him not to turn himself in," the radio transmission said.
It's not clear who was on the phone with Loyd.
"Standby. Standby. I'm hearing noise. Here he comes. All right, he just looked out the back door," the radio transmission said.
Loyd then threw two guns out of the house and crawled out the front door.
"Car two to the units on the scene," police said.
"Do we have confirmation?" police asked.
"Yeah, it's him. (He's) still wearing body armor," police said.
"All units on the channel, Lt. Clayton's handcuffs are on the suspect. Thank you. Excellent job, guys, excellent job," police said.
