JACK Casino Cleveland has beefed up its security as the police continue their manhunt for a man that shot a random stranger and posted the video of it on Facebook.

Police say that Steve Stephens, 37, gunned down an elderly man on Sunday in Cleveland and the incident went viral thanks to Facebook Live. The tech giant removed the content and deleted his page.

Stephens had ranted online about past personal problems, including a gambling addiction. According to reports, Stephens frequented the downtown Cleveland casino.

He apparently had been thrown out of the casino in recent weeks, reports said.

Stephens claimed on Facebook that he had committed multiple homicides, but authorities say there isn’t any evidence that the claims are true.

Reports surfaced midday on Tuesday that Stephens was spotted in Erie, PA.
