ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- An Orlando police sergeant who was gunned down by a wanted fugitive is being remembered for mentoring youth and her dedication to the community she grew up in.

A funeral service for Master Sgt. Debra Clayton is being held Saturday at the First Baptist Church of Orlando.

Clayton was gunned down outside a Wal-Mart store in Orlando last Monday after she approached 41-year-old Markeith Loyd.

Loyd was wanted for the murder of his pregnant ex-girlfriend at the time.

Hundreds of officers and deputies have been searching for Loyd since Monday, and a $100,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to his arrest.
