The man suspected of killing an Orlando police officer along with his pregnant girlfriend has been captured.

The month-long manhunt culminated with the apprehension of Markeith Loyd in the Carver Shores area of Orlando.

Loyd was apparently dressed in body armor and in possession of multiple handguns when he resisted arrest but was nonetheless taken into custody.

Loyd is suspected of murdering Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton on January 9.
