ORLANDO, Florida. – The monument to the fallen Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton continues to grow outside the department of the head office in the Centre of Orlando.
The intensive manhunt for her killer rages on, with Monday marking the eight days since the search for suspect Markeith Loyd began.
Lt. Clayton was shot January 9, in the parking lot of an Orlando Walmart.
The search for Loyd led dozens of police officers and the delegates to the Rosemont neighborhood Sunday evening.

Fox 35 saw dozens of officers with M-16’s in the hand and tactical gear on their backs.
“I’ve been alert on…high alert…very high alert,” Clark said.
