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

Now, police are desperately hunting for the man who killed Godwin and uploaded the video on Facebook, while Godwin's friends and family are trying to make sense of the senseless death of the 74-year-old man. He's identified as 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr.

Facebook later clarified that Stephens had posted a video, rather than broadcast live, although he had appeared on Facebook Live at one point in the day.

"We're not going to stop until he's in custody", Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said at a Monday morning press conference that.

"The only way to help is to give us information to bring him in peacefully, safely", said Mr Williams.

"She's the reason that this is about to happen to you", Stephens tells Godwin before pointing a gun at him. In January, four people in Chicago were arrested after they allegedly beat and taunted a mentally disabled man live on the social media site.

A search is underway for a man suspected of shooting and killing an elderly man, then sharing a video of the slaying on Facebook.

Williams said anyone helping hide Stephens will also face charges.

Police in OH are urging residents in surrounding states on Monday to be on alert for a man who they say shot and killed an elderly passerby and then posted a gruesome video of the killing on Facebook.

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

He is considered armed and unsafe, if seen, call 9-1-1.

The vaccine was introduced in 1967, and before the vaccine, over 186,000 mumps cases were reported yearly nationwide. The Health Department says although it is unlikely, people who have had the vaccine can still catch the disease.

She also said Stephens was "a nice guy" who was generous to everyone and was "kind and loving" to her and her children.

In one of the videos he is seen holding up his Beech Brook identification badge.

Stephens claimed on Facebook that he committed multiple homicides, but police said they have no knowledge of other victims.

An extensive background check before he was hired did not reveal anything that caused alarm, Beech Brook spokeswoman Nancy Kortemeyer said. Police said he might be driving a white or cream-colored Ford Fusion, and asked anyone who spots him or his vehicle to call police or a special Federal Bureau of Investigation hotline (800-CALLFBI).

Cleveland State posted on Twitter that police are searching for murder suspect last seen south of Interstate 90 in the area of East 93rd Street.

When Green spoke with her son on Sunday, he told her he was "shooting people" because he was "mad with his girlfriend" of about three years.

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

He is described as being just over 6 feet tall, weighing about 244 pounds.

When asked what message she wanted to relay to her son, Green said: "I want him to call me".
