Manhunt for man who posted deadly shooting on Facebook continues

Stephens laid out his motivation for the attack

(NBC News) – A nationwide manhunt is underway for a gunman suspected of executing an elderly Cleveland man on Easter Day and uploading video of the crime to Facebook.

Authorities believe 74-year-old Robert Godwin was selected at random by gunman Steve Stephens shortly before the murder.

Stephens laid out his motivation for the attack, blaming a woman he was dating.

“She drove me crazy, started making me gamble, I lost everything. I lost everything I had, man,” Stephens said in a Facebook video.

Stephens went on to claim he’d killed others, although authorities say they’ve found no evidence of that so far.

Officials are also enlisting the public in locating Stephens’ car, a white Ford Fusion with temporary Ohio tags.
