Philadelphia police put eight elementary schools and a high school on lockdown midday Monday as they looked into reports of the Cleveland Facebook shooting suspect being in the Fairmount Park area.
Police stressed in a short news release that as of 1:30 p.m. there was “no indication that that subject is in the (Belmont) Plateau area.” Police had received multiple 911 calls around 12:30 p.m. indicating that a person looking like the suspect, Steve Stephens, could be in the large urban park.
Stephens posted video of himself shooting and killing Robert Godwin Sr., 74, in Cleveland on Facebook Live Sunday, authorities said.
Since then, the FBI warned that Stephens could have fled from Ohio.
