The Cleveland police department issued a photo of Mr Stephens on its website, describing him as a 6ft 1in (1.9m) tall black male of medium complexion.
Stephens is believed to be driving a white or cream-colored Ford Fusion SUV, and is 6’1, 244 pounds. The other homicides have not been verified, police said.
Facebook condemned the killing, calling it an “horrific crime” and said that it works hard to “keep a safe environment on Facebook“. “I know, Steve, that you have a relationship with some of our clergy in Northeast Ohio”. In the Stephens case, Koricke stated that he is clearly trying to show a sense of power over the city by broadcasting it on Facebook.
Stephens claimed in Facebook posts to have killed 15 people, but police said they had not yet found any more victims.
The wanted suspect in Robert Godwin Sr.’s death broadcast the fatal shooting on Facebook.
The victim has been identified by Cleveland Police as Robert Goodwin, 74. The video remained up for about three hours before Facebook Inc.
Police had called it a Facebook Live video.
“On behalf of the Supreme Council and the members of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated, we lift our honest and heartfelt prayers and condolences of comfort to the families impacted by the recent shooting in Cleveland, Ohio“, it said.
“He was a good guy, he’d give you the shirt off his back”, a man who says he’s the 78-year-old man’s son.
Facebook has since removed the live videos the suspect uploaded and suspended the suspect’s account.
Beech Brook spokeswoman Nancy Kortemeyer tells WOIO-TV that the agency is “shocked and horrified”.
“I’m just running around hating my f***ing life”.
In the since-deleted Facebook video, Stephens reportedly walks up to the elderly victim and asks him to repeat a woman’s name.
Cleveland police on Sunday used social media to urge Stephens to turn himself in and to distribute pictures of him.
The FBI is assisting in the investigation.
Stephens is employed at Beech Brook, a behavioral health agency in northeast OH that serves children, teenagers and families, according to a spokeswoman for the facility.
