A man who identified himself as the son of victim Robert Godwin Sr., [74], cried while comforting another family member after learning his father was fatally shot around 2 p.m. on Easter Sunday.

“This man right here was a good man. I just hate that he’s gone,” Robert Godwin Jr. told WOIO-TV in Cleveland.


“I don’t know what I’m going to do. It’s not real,” he added in the Cleveland station’s report, before walking away with a mournful woman burying her face into his chest.

Cleveland Police Hunt For Suspect In Facebook Live Homicide

Cleveland police called on a suspect, who authorities said killed an elderly man and posted the video on Facebook on Sunday, to surrender, reports CNN:

“We need to bring this to a conclusion — today,” Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams told reporters during a search for the suspect, identified as Steve Stephens.

“There is no need for any further bloodshed in this incident tonight,” Williams added.

Stephens didn’t know the elderly victim he killed around 2 p.m., before a manhunt began, said Cleveland authorities, who did not release a motive.

Stephens also claimed to have committed multiple homicides, according to police. Williams said, “Currently, there are no other victims that we know of.”
