ORLANDO — A nighttime aerial video of police capturing a fugitive wanted in the slaying of an Orlando officer appears to show at least two officers kicking Markeith Loyd as he crawls toward them in surrender.
The video was released Thursday, two days after Loyd was tracked down to an abandoned house in west Orlando after a manhunt that lasted more than a week.
Loyd's face was visibly bloodied and swollen when he was taken to police headquarters Tuesday night.
Orlando Police Chief John Mina said at a news conference Thursday that Loyd had a fracture to a bone around the eye.
Mina says Loyd wasn't complying with officers' orders. He says a use of force investigation is underway.
