Man wanted for broadcasting murder on Facebook Live
By Joe Tacopino
April 16, 2017 | 5:59pm | Updated

Cops in Cleveland were hunting for an “armed and dangerous” man Sunday after he reportedly shot and killed someone while livestreaming the entire grisly affair on Facebook.

Steve Stephens allegedly shot and killed someone at around 3 p.m. in the Glenville neighborhood while broadcasting the murder on Facebook Live, according to Cleveland.com.

In macabre video, Stephens walks up to an elderly man on the street and points his gun before shooting him in the head.

The man collapses on to the blood-soaked pavement as Stephens continues to film.

The clip stayed online for nearly three hours before being taken down.

Stephens also posted a second video, after the alleged murder, and admitted snapped and “messed up.”

Cleveland State University, which is nearby, was placed on lockdown while cops searched for the gunman.

Facebook murder suspect recognized at McDonald’s after ordering McNuggets; employee alerted police
Posted 11:13 AM, April 18, 2017

ERIE, Pa. — The man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting after video of the incident was posted on Facebook is dead following a brief pursuit in Pennsylvania on Tuesday.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, officers received a tip around 11 a.m. when Steve Stephens’ vehicle was spotted at a McDonald’s in Erie.

According to employees at the restaurant, Stephens ordered a 20-piece McNuggets and a large order of fries in the drive-thru. He was given his order of McNuggets, but employees tried to make him wait for his fries after one of the workers recognized him.

“But he just took his nuggets and said, ‘I have to go,’ and he drove off,” Henry Sayers, the restaurant’s manager, told the New York Times.

Steve Stephens Tortured Pets & Wore a Snake Around His Neck, Neighbors Say
Published 11:09 am EDT, April 18, 2017

Steve “Stevie Steve” Stephens, the Cleveland man who police say killed Robert Godwin Sr. and posted the murder on Facebook on Sunday, tortured his pets as a teenager, a former neighbor said. The neighbor also said that Stephens wore a snake around his neck.

Henderson said that Stephens was “not normal” and claimed that he saw Stephens torture a bird. He told the Daily Beast:

He asked me to come in and see his pet bird, so I went in their house. He had a parakeet and he had that bird crawl from the cage and on to his finger. Then he slapped the bird as hard as he could with his other hand, and the bird was lying on the floor. The bird looked dead to me. I looked at him and his was smiling and laughing as he looked at me and that bird. Hey, animals don’t make you weird like that. He was that way before he got that bird. Heard he used to torture other pets he had. He was like that from the time I first met him.


Charisse Leonard also told the Daily Mail that Stephens “was confused about his sexuality and could even have been gay.”

Tip From Alert McDonald's Worker Led Officers to Facebook Killing Suspect
A McDonald's worker recognized Steve Stephens, called police and then told Stephens his order was delayed
By Mike Householder and Mark Gillispie
Published at 11:37 AM EDT on Apr 18, 2017 | Updated 10 minutes ago

The man who randomly gunned down a Cleveland retiree and posted video of the crime on Facebook killed himself Tuesday during a police chase in Pennsylvania that began when a McDonald's drive-thru attendant recognized him.

It marked a violent end to the nearly 48-hour multistate manhunt for Steve Stephens, whose case brought another round of criticism down on Facebook over how responsibly it polices objectionable material posted by users.

Acting on a tip from the McDonald's, Pennsylvania state troopers spotted Stephens leaving the restaurant in Erie and went after him, bumping his car to try to get it to stop, authorities said. He shot himself in the head after the car spun out of control and came to a stop, police said.

"This started with one tragedy and ended with another person taking their own life," said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams. "We would have liked to have brought Steve in peacefully and really talked to him about why this happened."

Stephens, a 37-year-old job counselor who worked with young people, was wanted on murder charges in the killing of Robert Godwin Sr., 74, a former foundry worker and father of 10 who was picking up aluminum cans on Sunday when he was shot.

The chilling video was on Facebook for three hours before it was taken down. It was just the latest instance of crime footage being shared on social media.

At a Silicon Valley conference Tuesday, Facebook CEO (((Mark Zuckerberg))) briefly addressed the Cleveland case, saying Facebook has "a lot of work to do" and "we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this."

Police would not speculate on what was behind the killing, but in the video and other footage he posted, Stephens talked about losing everything he had to gambling and having trouble with his girlfriend. He said he "just snapped."

One of Godwin's daughters, Debbie Godwin, said she wished Stephens had been captured.

"I'm not happy he's dead at all, not at all. If you did it, you have to face your crime," she said.

The break in the case came when police received a tip that Stephens was at the McDonald's in Erie, in the northwestern corner of the state, about 100 miles east of Cleveland. He ordered a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets and french fries, according to the manager.

Restaurant owner Thomas DuCharme Jr. told the Erie Times-News that the drive-thru attendant thought she recognized Stephens and called state police. State Police Maj. William Teper Jr. would say only that the tip came from a "concerned citizen."


The McDonald's employees tried to "buy some time for the cops" by telling Stephens his order of fries was delayed, but Stephens said he had no time to wait and drove off, according to DuCharme.

Police picked up the trail in a chase that lasted 2 miles before Stephens took his own life, authorities said.

The police chief said that it wasn't clear whether Stephens had any help while he was on the run or where he had been and that investigators will try to retrace his steps. Stephens' cellphone had been tracked Sunday afternoon near Erie, officials said on Monday.

Facebook said it removed the video of the shooting 23 minutes after learning of it. The company has since announced it is launching a review for reporting harmful content.

"This is something that should not have been shared around the world. Period," Cleveland's police chief said.

In the video, Stephens told Godwin the name of his girlfriend and said, "She's the reason that this is about to happen to you." Godwin did not seem to recognize the name.

The woman, Joy Lane, told WJW-TV in Cleveland that she last talked with Stephens on Saturday night, when he told her he had quit his job and was moving out of state.

Investigators said that Godwin was the only victim so far linked to Stephens, despite his claim on Facebook that he killed over a dozen people.

Detectives spoke with the suspect on Sunday by cellphone and tried to persuade him to surrender, police said. Within a day, authorities expanded the search nationwide and offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to his capture.
