Manhunt for man who broadcasted shooting on Facebook live in Cleveland

Cleveland Police are hunting for a man who has killed at least one stranger and broadcast the murder via Facebook Live.

The suspect, Steve Stephens, also claimed to have committed multiple other homicides.

Cleveland Police are searching for a man they say shot and killed another man during a Facebook Live video Sunday afternoon.

"And I'm about to keep killing until they catch me", Stephens said, according to NBC. Armed and risky. If seen call 9-1-1.

The highly-distressing footage shows the shooter approaching the elderly man - whom he doesn't appear to know - in the street, saying: "Can you do me a favour?"

Stephens was described as black, 6 feet, 1 inch tall, weighing 244 pounds and bald with a full beard.

Police say he is armed and risky. No other victims have yet been found, according to Cleveland Police Department spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia. He was wearing a dark-striped polo shirt at the time of the shooting.
