Cleveland police hunt for man who streamed fatal shooting on Facebook Live

Police said Stephens is armed and risky and should not be approached.

In January, four black people in Chicago were accused of attacking an 18-year-old disabled white man and broadcasting the attack on Facebook Live while making anti-white racial taunts.

"He could be nearby".

The Cleveland community is left in shock after a gruesome broad daylight killing was broadcast live on social media, and police are desperate to capture the suspect.

In another video, he says, "The people I'm going to kill today, it's Easter Sunday, it's not my first".

Williams says officers have searched dozens of places since the shooting Sunday and told residents to go about their business, but be careful.

Investigators didn't know where he was, but said people should be on the lookout in New York, Pennsylvania, Indiana and MI. Stephen's cell phone was detected about 100 miles east of Cleveland in Erie, Pennsylvania.

Williams says Godwin family has seen several GoFundMe campaigns set up in Robert Godwin's name, and is saying people should not contribute to those at this time. "That's all he was doing".

She said her father, who had 10 children, was a gentle man with nothing mean about him. "We don't know why", Williams said. "He'd pick up things off the street and fix them". Williams said the only way to help Stephens is to give police the information to bring him in peacefully.

After, Stephens aims a gun at Godwin - who shields his face with the plastic bag he had been using to collect cans.

"I am sorry that all of this has happened", Lane wrote in a text message to CBS.

"It's not real. (My father) was a good guy". Stephens is not believed to have known Godwin, police said. It was recorded and then uploaded to Facebook by Steve Stephens, according to a Facebook spokesperson.

Cleveland police are now investigating a homicide after police said the suspect used Facebook live during the killing. Steve Stephens, 37, posted a video of himself murdering an elderly man and then posted the video on Facebook, the Daily Mail reported.

The company on Sunday called it a "horrific crime", and said that it works hard to "keep a safe environment on Facebook".

In the separate video, Stephens said: "I killed 13, so I'm working on 14 as we speak". They believe he's left OH and may be in Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana or MI.

Employment: Stephens worked for a behavioral health agency, according to the Dayton Daily News.

Beech Brook spokeswoman Nancy Kortemeyer says Monday there was nothing in the background check for Stephens that caused any concerns.

An extensive background check before he was hired turned up nothing worrisome, she said.
