Orlando Police say murder suspect Markeith Loyd is in custody after a massive manhunt that lasted nearly a week.

Law enforcement officials have been searching for Loyd after he was accused of shooting and killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend Sade Dixon in December. Last week, police allege he shot and killed Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton when she tried to detain him at a Walmart on Princeton Street.

Several police agencies have participated in the manhunt for Loyd, and so far, three people have been arrested for allegedly helping him.

Most recently, authorities offered $125,000 for his capture. Orlando Police Chief John Mina says on Tuesday that Loyd was arrested using Clayton's handcuffs.
