Default Cleveland: Manhunt for potential active shooter

Current as of 6:08 PM eastern time, Sunday April 16th
- Cleveland police have released photos of Steve Stephens, currently subject of a manhunt.
- Stephens broadcast a live video on Facebook a few hours ago of him approaching a random elderly man on the street, ordering him to say a woman's name, and then shooting him in the head.
- Stephens appears to have a grievance with an ex girlfriend, and has blamed her for the death.
- Stephens claimed on video to have killed 13 other people today in a vacant house and has referred to an 'easter massacre'. No other bodies yet confirmed.
- Stephens is believed armed and dangerous, police say do not approach.
- Cleveland municipal press conference scheduled from 6:25 PM.
- White Ford Fusion with a temporary tag.

I saw the video a little while ago... It's bad. Plain as day he walks up to the old gent, gets him to say his ex girlfriend's name, tells the ex girlfriend on the live stream 'this is because of you' or words to that effect, then shoots the victim square in the head. Last shot of the guy dead on the sidewalk with blood everywhere.

Until proven otherwise this guy needs to be considered an active threat who will continue trying to kill people until stopped.

Pity there weren't half a dozen armed citizens in the vicinity.

He was driving around looking for a victim in a quiet area... Had there been others around he likely would have kept driving and looked for someone else in another location. Not hard, really. But yes, it's a pity there wasn't someone there to drop his ass with some well placed rounds. Safe bet whichever officers end up behind that Ford Fusion will not be fucking around when they get him stopped.

Good.

Glad that no LEO's were involved. Glad he did society a favor and took care of himself --- WOuld have been better had he done so without killing an innocent man on Easter.

I cannot help wondering how he felt after shooting that old man .

Did it get to him emotionally or not ?
