The Maryland-National Capital Park Police are looking for a cyclist in sunglass and an orange helmet who was caught on camera earlier this week accosting a young girl, grabbing a flyer out of her hand, and ramming the man filming it all with his bike.

The group was putting up flyers in Bethesda, a D.C. suburb, supporting the protests inspired by George Floyd, a black man killed by police in Minneapolis. The flyer read "Killer Cops Will Not Go Free," a message the cyclist evidently found objectionable. The incident took place June 1, but news and social media took note on Thursday.

Maryland-National Capital Park Police have apparently not yet identified the man, but the video's virality seems to have increased the number of tips. "We want to thank the community for their support," the department tweeted Thursday night. "Please remember all people are innocent until proven otherwise. Keep the tips coming and we will follow up. Please contact Park Police at 301-929-2774 with any information." Peter Weber

A manhunt is underway in Cleveland for a suspect who police say murdered an elderly man and streamed it on Facebook Live.

Police have identified the suspect as Steve Stephens, and they said the video of the shooting was up on Facebook for nearly three hours before it was removed. Police say Stephens is considered armed and dangerous; he is 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs 240 pounds, and was last seen wearing a dark-striped polo shirt and in either a white or cream-colored SUV, and anyone who sees him should call 911 immediately.

Police say Stephens claimed in a second Facebook Live stream that he murdered several other people, saying he snapped and "messed up," Cleveland.com reports. Authorities said they have not verified any additional homicides or found any other victims. A spokesperson for Facebook called the incident a "horrific crime," adding that the company "does not allow this kind of content on Facebook." Stephens' Facebook page has been deactivated.

If and when Thomas Eric Duncan, the first patient diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., returns to Liberia, the board of directors of the Liberia Airport Authority say they plan to prosecute him for lying on an airport health questionnaire.

Passengers leaving Liberia are asked whether they've had contact with anyone infected with the Ebola virus. Duncan's questionnaire, obtained by the The Associated Press, reveals that Duncan answered "No" to those questions, despite reports from neighbors who say Duncan assisted a sick pregnant woman who later died of Ebola. Though as AP notes, "her illness at the time was believed to be pregnancy-related." Teresa Mull
