Cleveland man wanted for killing posted on Facebook

Steve Stephens is accused of killing an elderly man in Cleveland. Steve Stephens is accused of killing an elderly man in Cleveland.

A massive manhunt is underway for the Cleveland, Ohio gunman who shot a man to death Sunday, then posted the video to Facebook.

A $50,000 reward is offered for information leading to the arrest of Steve Stephens, described as armed and extremely dangerous.

Stephens posted a video manifesto about a shooting spree before posting a video that shows him shooting 74-year-old Robert Godwin to death.

Godwin was walking home after enjoying an Easter Sunday meal with his family. His daughter told reporters he was a gentle person with nothing mean about him. 

The video shows Stephens getting out of a car and telling Godwin he's about to die because of a woman.

Then a handgun comes into view, a gunshot is heard, and moments later the victim is laying in a pool of blood.

On his Facebook page Stephens claims to have killed even more people; police say they are searching for additional victims, but none have been found.

As of Monday morning, Stephens last known location was the shooting site. Local police and the FBI believe he is still in Cleveland, yet a warning is out for people in Pennsylvania, News York, Indiana and Michigan to be on the lookout.

Police in Philadelphia say they have "no indication" that the suspect in an apparently random killing in Cleveland is in Philadelphia.
    
Authorities said multiple 911 calls came in shortly after 12:30 p.m. Monday reporting that Steve Stephens could be in or near Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, a large green expanse northwest of downtown.
    
Officers were sent to check the area, and police say eight elementary schools and a high school were locked down as a precaution.
    
But police later said "there is no indication that the subject is at that location, or anywhere in the city of Philadelphia."

Chief Calvin Williams says detectives talked with Stephens by cellphone Sunday after he shot 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. but haven't had contact since.
