Philadelphia police are reportedly searching Fairmount Park after #SteveStevens was
allegedly spotted on park grounds.
A multi-state search was initiated Sunday night after the gruesome video, which depicts Stephens fatally shooting 74-year-old Robert Godwin at point blank range, was published online. Early Monday morning, CNN reported authorities in Erie, Pennsylvania, had picked up a signal from Stephens' cell phone.
By Monday afternoon, a 6ABC report surfaced that Philadelphia police had descended on Fairmount Park for unconfirmed sighting of Stephens, according to 6ABC. Police said there was no indication Stephens was in fact at the park, but the search was launched as a precaution.
Nine area schools in Philadelphia's 16th, 18th, 19th and 22nd police districts were placed on lockdown.
Cleveland police and U.S. Marshals have requested additional backup to search for Stephens in New York, Michigan and Indiana.
Stephens stands 6 feet 1 inches tall and weighs 244 pounds. He was last seen wearing a striped polo shirt and was driving a white Ford Fusion with temporary license plates. Police said Stephens is armed and dangerous. #SteveStephens #philly #philadelphia
