A manhunt is currently underway in Orlando, Florida, for a man who shot and killed a 17-year police veteran, wife and mother of two.

On Monday morning, Orlando police Master Sgt. Debra Clayton was attempting to make contact with a murder suspect at a Walmart. A short two minutes after attempting to detain the man, officials received a call of an officer shot.

According to witness James Herman, “I was walking down the sidewalk, right past the officer, and I heard her tell him to stop, or whatever, and he shot her. He shot her down. He took off running. It’s unreal.”

Herman explained to Channel 9 News, “As he was running, he was shooting back, he was shooting backwards. I hit the ground on the side over here because I wasn’t sure where the shooting was coming from at first.”

Police later identified the suspect as 41-year-old Markeith Loyd, who, one month ago, murdered his pregnant girlfriend and got away.

“The Orlando Police Department family is heartbroken today,” the department tweeted after the heartbreaking occurrence. “One of our own was taken in the line of duty. There are no words.”

The department also shared several photos of Clayton on social media, calling her a hero and a woman who always had a smile for the kids. “Master Sgt. Debra Clayton, wkd dayshift patrol, will be missed beyond words. She always had a smile/high five 4 every/kid she came across,” one tweet read.

Per officials, Clayton was also one of the first officers to arrive to the tragic mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub last year.

Unfortunately for the city, the morning was far from over.

Following the officer involved shooting, multiple agencies set out for an intense manhunt to find the suspected killer.

During the race to find Loyd, an Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy on a motorcycle was killed in a crash. According to officials, “a motorist turned in front of him. Based on eyewitness testimony, he had a green light, he was not traveling at any (high) rate of speed.”

Mayor Buddy Dyer has already called today an official day of mourning.

The suspected murderer, meanwhile, is still at large. Authorities are now offering a $60,000 reward. “We’re going to bring this dirtbag to justice and he’s going to jail,” Orlando police Chief John Mina said.

White Cheerleaders Scream “F*ck N*ggers” In Viral Video — But Why Officials Might Be Defending The Girls

A video has gone viral of a group of white high school students screaming what appears to be “f*ck ni**ers,” but is there more to the disgusting clip?

The horrendous visual, which went viral earlier this week, shows three girls from Weber High School in Utah yelling the offensive phrase at the top of their lungs.

“We are shocked by the conduct of these students and the contents of the video,” Weber School District said in a statement of the 10 second video. “School officials have started an investigation and the matter is being taken very seriously.”

They added, “We are trying to determine when the video was made, where it was filmed, why the students would engage in such conduct, and how the clip ended up on social media.”

While folks around the nation are disgusted by the disturbing occurrence, some school officials might be defending the group of perceived racists teens.

The district confirmed that an IT guy is looking into the video to see if there was an original video that was put into an app to make a phrase play backwards.

So what could the girls possibly been saying? “Surgeon cuff.” Ummmm, because there’s nothing like yelling “surgeon cuff” in the middle of the day.

After watching the video: Do you think the girls are outright yelling “f*ck n*ggers?”
