The chief also asked Stephens to turn himself in.

“What happened today is senseless,” said Williams. “I know, Steve, that you have a relationship with some of our clergy in Northeast Ohio. I encourage you to give them a call and then call us and turn yourself in.”

The victim in the Facebook Live shooting has been identified as Robert Goodwin, Sr., 74, by Cleveland officials.

Cleveland authorities as well as federal, state and other local law enforcement agencies are all looking for Stephens.

“We know who he is and he will eventually be caught,” said Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson.
