Manhunt expanded for suspect in Facebook video killing

Cleveland police are searching for a suspect who allegedly shot and killed a man during a Facebook Live stream Sunday, according to local media reports.

The woman Stephens mentioned is one person police have spoken to in the investigation, Williams said.

The victim has been identified as 74-year-old Robert Godwin, Sr.

In the video, which appeared shaky, Stephens got out of his auto and randomly targeted Godwin, who was holding a shopping bag.

Then a handgun comes into view, a gunshot is heard, and moments later the victim is laying in a pool of blood. The son said he believed his father was looking for cans on Sunday when Stephens approached him.

Mr Stephens said in Facebook comments that he had killed 15 people in Cleveland, but Mr Williams said there was no evidence that he had killed anyone other than Mr Godwin.

He also takes a moment in the second video to blame the killings on his girlfriend, saying that he woke up on Friday and just decided that he had enough.

"We work hard to keep a safe environment on Facebook and are in touch with law enforcement in emergencies when there are direct threats to physical safety", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.

The Sunday shooting occurred just south of Interstate 90 in the Glenville neighborhood.

Stephens could be wearing a gray or black striped polo shirt and driving a white Ford Fusion with temporary tags, officials said.

"We know who he is and he will eventually be caught", said Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson.

A spokeswoman for the behavior health facility where the suspect in the shooting of an elderly Cleveland man worked says the man underwent an extensive Federal Bureau of Investigation background check before being hired in 2008.

"He said this is the last time I was going to see him", Green told CNN. And a third video, with a confession to murder, was broadcast live at 2:22 and reported by someone shortly after it ended at 2:27 p.m. EDT. She says he spent the day before the shooting doing one of the things he loved most, fishing in Lake Erie.

Cleveland's police chief said Monday that only Steve Stephens knows the answer. Anyone with information should call 911. But Stephens' mother said he is a social worker.

The video of Sunday's homicide was viewable on Facebook for about three hours before it was removed and Stephens' profile was deactivated.

Kortemeyer says Stephens' job since 2015 as a vocational specialist involved preparing youth and young adults ages 16-25 for employment.

Late Sunday, police issued an aggravated murder warrant for him and said in a statement that he may have traveled out of state. Stephens account was also removed.

As the camera panned back to Godwin, whose body was in a pool of blood on the pavement, Stephens said into the camera, "That motherf**ker dead 'cause of you, Joy'".
