Police Launch Manhunt for Steve Stephens After He Committed Murder on Facebook Live

Police have launched a manhunt for Steve Stephens who reportedly committed a murder on Facebook Live. He wrote that he killed 12 people today in a Facebook post.

Cleveland Plain Dealer:  “The shooting happened on East 93rd Street just south of the Interstate 90 in the city’s Glenville neighborhood, Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said. The accused shooter, Steve Stephens, broadcast the shooting live on Facebook. The video of the killing remained up on Facebook for nearly three hours before it was taken down. His page has also been deactivated.”

Cleveland police describe Stephens as  “6’1″ 244 pounds, bald with a full beard. He is wearing dark blue and grey or black striped polo shirt. He is thought to be driving a white or cream colored SUV.  Police say he is armed and dangerous.”

WOIO spoke with a man who said the elderly man that Stephens shot was his 78-year-old father. “He was a good guy. He would give you the shirt off his back,” he said. “I’m not just saying that for these cameras … This man, right here, was a good man and I hate that he’s gone,” WOIO reports.

The man has been identified as Robert Goodwin.
