CLEVELAND, OH - Cleveland Police have issued an aggravated murder warrant for a man accused of shooting and killing another man on East 93rd Street and posting the video on Facebook.

He's been identified as 37-year-old  Steve Stephens.

Authorities said Stephens is a black male who is 6-feet 1-inch, weighs 244 pounds and is bald with a full beard. Stephens was last seen wearing a dark blue and gray or black striped polo shirt. 

Police say he shot 74-year-old Robert Godwin and posted the video Sunday afternoon.

Investigators say he claimed to have committed other homicides as well, but police have not verified that, or have found any other victims.

Stephens didn't know his victim and police did not release his motive.

But Stephens' mom said he told here he was shooting people because he was mad at his girlfriend.

He is believed to be driving a white Ford Fusion with a temporary tag of E363630.

Police consider him armed and dangerous and are asking anyone who sees Stephens to not approach him but contact 911. The F-B-I is assisting Cleveland Police in the search for Stephens.
