The Orlando Eye, always a sort of emotional thermometer for the city, shone a bright shade of blue Monday night in remembrance of the death of Orlando Police Master Sergeant Debra Clayton, shot to death Monday morning.
In the past, the Eye has shone rainbow colors for the Pulse nightclub shooting and other colors to honor the victims of the Paris attack in November 2015 and the Brussels airport bombing in March 2016, as well as various shades for the holidays, such as peppermint red-and-green for Christmas.
Clayton died Monday morning after being shot while pursuing murder suspect Markeith Loyd at a Walmart on Princeton Street and John Young Parkway.
A manhunt for Loyd was underway for the remainder of the day, and law enforcement are offering a $60,000 reward for any information that could lead to his capture.
An Orange County Sheriff’s Office deputy, Norman Lewis, was also killed in a car crash Monday morning.
