Orlando Master Sgt. Deborah Clayton was shot and killed early Monday morning. At least 13 schools are on lockdown and a massive manhunt is underway as Orlando police hunt the cop killer.
Clayton was shot shortly after 7 a.m. Eastern, and the Orlando Police Department indicates that she died at 7:40:

The suspect in her death, 43-year-old Markeith Loyd, “was accused of murdering his girlfriend” in December 2016 and “[has] been arrested 20 times in Orange County since 1994,” according to Fox News.
