    Cops in Cleveland were hunting for an “armed and dangerous” man Sunday after he reportedly shot and killed someone while livestreaming the entire grisly affair on Facebook.

    Steve Stephens allegedly shot and killed someone at around 3 p.m. in the Glenville neighborhood while broadcasting the murder on Facebook Live, according to Cleveland.com.

    The macabre video stayed online for nearly three hours before being taken down, the website said.

    Stephens also posted a second video, after the alleged murder, and admitted snapped and “messed up.”

    Cleveland State University, which is nearby, was placed on lockdown while cops searched for the gunman.
