In the video, which has been removed from Facebook, the suspect pulls up to an elderly man who is walking on the side of the road.
Cleveland Police said in a statement that Steve Stephens is 6'1 and weighs 244 pounds, with a bald head and a full beard, wearing dark blue and grey or a black striped polo shirt. Other law enforcement officers were also riding with Cleveland officers, the police said.
In an incredibly disturbing video, the suspect is shown in his auto talking about a woman and then goes on to say, "Found me somebody I'm going to kill, this guy right here, this old dude".
"He is considered armed and unsafe, so we want people to be careful out there", Williams said.
According to the police authorities, Goodwin had left his children's home on Easter Sunday after sharing a meal with them.
"We are shocked and horrified like everyone else", said Nancy Kortemeyer, a spokeswoman for Beech Brook.
Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams informed the press that the authorities know of only one killing so far.
Cops initially said Godwin Sr. was fatally shot by gunman Steve Stephens on a Facebook Live broadcast.
"We want this to end with as much peace as we can bring to this right now", Williams said, adding police knew of no other victims. "There are no more victims tied to Steve and this incident", Williams said.
He said police are also working with his family. According to family members, the shooting victim is a 78-year-old man.
The company on Sunday called it a "horrific crime", and said that it works hard to "keep a safe environment on Facebook". He is driving a white Ford Fusion with temporary plates.
Perhaps the most disturbing part of this case is the video the suspect recorded while running wild on a killing spree.
The suspect, identified as Steve Stephens, is considered armed and unsafe, police said after the homicide in northeast Cleveland near the Lake Erie shore. Williams said that there seemed to be no apparent connection between the suspect and the victim. "Armed and unsafe. If seen call 9-1-1". His Facebook page apparently was deactivated later Sunday afternoon. Williams said police have not verified that information. Cleveland State University issued an alert on social media. "I just snatch." The suspect, considered to be armed and unsafe, says he WILL NOT STOP the "Easter Day slaughter" until he's caught...so police better find him ASAP!
