A manhunt is under way for a suspect whom Cleveland police say filmed his fatal shooting of an elderly man, in a video that he posted to Facebook.
In a later video, also posted to Facebook on Sunday afternoon, Steve Stephens, the accused shooter, says he has killed more than a dozen other people. Police have not verified that claim.
Cleveland police have identified the homicide victim from the video as 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr.
Contrary to earlier reports, a Facebook spokesperson now tells NPR via email that “the murder was not broadcast live on Facebook (it was uploaded), although the suspect did go live at one point during the day.”
