$50,000 Reward For The Coward Involved In The Facebook Live Shooting



The search for a suspect who police believe randomly shot a man walking along a Cleveland-area sidewalk on Sunday before posting the video to Facebook broadened nationwide on Monday as officials acknowledged that they did not know where the man was and announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

The police in Philadelphia said that they had received multiple reports of unconfirmed sightings of the wanted man, Steve Stephens, at the Belmont Plateau park area in the western part of the city. In a statement on Monday afternoon, however, they said that so far, there was “no indication” that the suspect had actually been there, though they had locked down nearby schools as a precaution.
Chief Calvin D. Williams of the Cleveland Police Department said on Monday that the authorities had searched “every location” where Mr. Stephens has resided, as well as places were his family members live. They have recovered items, including weapons, and “other things that are pertinent to the investigation,” he said, without specifying to whom those items belonged.

“I think we can say without a doubt, he’s armed,” Chief Williams said. “Steve, if you’re out there listening, call someone.”

Mr. Stephens, 37, is being sought in what the authorities said was a random shooting of Robert Godwin Sr., 74. (The police initially identified him as Robert Goodwin Sr.)

A warrant for Mr. Stephens’s arrest on a charge of aggravated murder has been issued, and the police asked residents of Indiana, Michigan, New York, northeast Ohio and Pennsylvania to be on alert. Mr. Stephens said in a video on Sunday that he had killed multiple people, but the police said there was only one known victim.
