Indiana Pacers head coach Nate McMillan told reporters security personnel instructed the team to remain in its hotel as Cleveland police searched for a homicide suspect.

"We got security at the hotel to make sure that guys were safe" McMillan said, per USA Today's Michael Singer. "There might have been a few people that were out, including family members that we made sure we got security to them. Our guy was right on top of that, everybody came out okay, which was the main thing."

CNN's Kwegyirba Croffie, Darran Simon and Sara Ganim reported Sunday night local authorities were on the lookout for Steve Stephens, who's alleged to have committed a murder in Cleveland and broadcast it on Facebook. According to Ganim, Nicole Chavez and Eliott C. McLaughlin, the manhunt has grown to Ohio's neighboring states.

The Pacers play the Cleveland Cavaliers Monday night in Game 2 of their first-round series. The series moves to Indianapolis for Game 3 on Thursday.
