Police in Philadelphia said schools have been locked down as they investigate reported sightings of the suspect in an apparently random killing in Cleveland. But authorities also say there is no indication that Stephens is in Philadelphia.

Authorities say multiple 911 calls came in shortly after 12:30 p.m. Monday claiming that Stephens could be in or near Fairmount Park, a large green expanse northwest of downtown.

Officers are checking the area, and police say eight elementary schools and a high school are on lockdown as a precaution.

Philadelphia is a more-than-six-hour drive from Cleveland.
