Chicago - A man suspected of broadcasting a murder on Facebook was being sought Sunday by police in the US city of Cleveland, Ohio.

"Suspect did broadcast the killing on Facebook Live and has claimed to have committed multiple other homicides which are yet to be verified," police said on Twitter, as they searched for Steve Stephens.

The suspect, 37, fled in a white Ford Fusion with temporary plates, police in the midwestern US city said.

Some local media report that Stephens boasted on Facebook of killing more than a dozen people in an Easter Day slaughter.
