The Cleveland man who posted a video on Facebook depicting him killing an elderly man in broad daylight on Sunday afternoon “could be a lot of places,” the FBI said.

The FBI and U.S. Marshals Service joined what has become a nationwide manhunt after Steve Stephens is accused of shooting a 74-year-old man and bragging about killing a dozen others on Sunday afternoon.

The FBI also is offering a $50,000 reward for information about Stephens’ whereabouts.

An aggravated murder warrant has been issued for Stephens, who has not been seen since posting the video.

“Obviously this individual is armed and dangerous, and quite frankly, at this point he could be a lot of places,” said Stephen D. Anthony, special agent in charge of the FBI in Cleveland. “He could be nearby, he could be far away, anywhere in between.”

The FBI has erected billboards of Steve Stephens as far away as Salt Lake City.

The FBI is helping Cleveland Police search for a gunman who shot and killed an elderly man and uploaded the video to Facebook on Sunday, prompting a manhunt that continued into Monday morning.

Police said Steve Stephens uploaded the video that shows him shooting the elderly man in the head. Stephens also claimed on the video that he killed about a dozen other people, but police said there’s no evidence of other murders.

The FBI quickly joined in the manhunt.

Police believe Stephens may have fled Cleveland and could be in Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York or Indiana.

A consistent theme of Donald Trump’s campaign speech at the Republican National Convention on Thursday night was rising crime.

But his message doesn’t align with crime data, which shows a gradual decline for more than two decades.

So how does his campaign explain the “law and order” message?

Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, claims the FBI’s annual data on crime isn’t reliable.

“The FBI certainly is suspect these days for what they just did with Hillary Clinton,” Manafort told CNN.

Manafort provided no evidence that the numbers were wrong.

It appears the Secret Service is worried about a fruit war at the Republican National Convention.

Along with weapons, fireworks and explosives, fruit is a banned item in the convention area.

Fruit, said one Secret Service officer, “can be thrown,” The New York Post reports.

Here is a list of other banned items: strollers, selfie sticks, screwdrivers, baseballs and fog horns.

Black Lives Matter activists said FBI agents have been urging them not to protest at this week’s Republican convention in Cleveland.

The Washington Post repots that Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson asked President Obama to instruct the FBI to stop contacting activists ahead of the convention.

The Post reports:

Activists in Cleveland, San Francisco, New York, Minneapolis, and St. Louis have all told The Washington Post that they have been visited by FBI agents in recent days, which the activists consider an intimidation tactic.

One activist with Campaign Zero, the group co-founded by Mckesson, tweeted about a recent encounter he had with an FBI agent.

An activist in New York said an agent visited his home earlier this week.

“I don’t want to talk about particular groups here but there is a concern anytime there’s an event like this that people from across a spectrum of radical groups will be attracted to it,” FBI Director James Comey said during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing.

The nation’s top law enforcement officials are warning of potential violence at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next week.

ABC News reports that officials were worried about radical activists.

“I am concerned about the prospect of demonstrations getting out of hand, and concerned about the possibility of violence,” Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson told the House Homeland Security Committee Thursday. “We have to be concerned about things getting out of hand, definitely.”

FBI Director James Comey agreed.

“It’s a threat we’re watching very, very carefully,” adding that the concern is over “a spectrum of radical groups.”

Earlier this week, local law enforcement and the Secret Service said they are prepared for thousands of protesters.

FBI: No ‘Credible’ Security Threats at RNC in Cleveland – Yet

Local, state and federal authorities are bracing for what could be violent clashes outside the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next week.

As thousands of protesters plan to gather in Cleveland, federal agents have learned of some plans to disrupt the event.

But still, FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen Anthony said there’s no evidence too a large-scale attack at the convention, Cleveland.com reports. 

“That’s not to say there aren’t things that concern us everyday, regardless of whether the RNC is here or not,” Anthony said at a Tuesday morning security briefing.

Authorities held a briefing Tuesday to discuss security with the media.

Local police and federal authorities feel confident about their security plan.

One concern is a “lone-wolf” attack, like the one in Orlando or Dallas.

Worried about an outbreak of violence during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, local and federal law enforcement investigators have begun visiting the homes of local activists to gather information on planned demonstrations.

Cleveland.com reports that activists felt the “door-knock” visits were intimidating.

An FBI spokesman for the local branch called the door knocking “community outreach” to ensure next month’s GOP convention is a “safe and secure” event.

About a dozen activists have reported being visited by teams of local and federal law enforcement officials this week.
