CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Local and federal law enforcement agencies across northeast Ohio and surrounding states remain on the lookout Monday morning for the man accused of killing another man on Facebook Live.
Police said they fear Stephens may have escaped the immediate area into a surrounding state.
They are asking the public to be vigilant in Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, and Michigan.
The tips to police on Sunday night and rumors spread on social media created a broad search radius for the suspect.
People speculated on social media that the suspect was anywhere from Chesterland to Solon, to Erie, Pa., but none of them proved accurate enough to lead to a capture.
Cleveland police reiterated late Sunday night that any confirmed updates would be coming from a law enforcement agency.
False information could lead to a dangerous situation.
Description of Stephens:
- He is described as a black man
- 6 foot 1, 244 pounds
- Bald with a full beard
- Wearing a dark blue and grey or black striped polo shirt
- White or cream-colored SUV
