Active Shooter Claims To Have Killed 15 People In Cleveland; Posts Murder On Facebook - Article Reported by: @iamBrianaB
The suspect has been identified as Steve Stephens, but goes by #StevieSteve on Facebook. In a post from earlier today, Stephens admits to killing 12 people and says that he won’t stop until his mother, or girlfriend, Joy Lane, calls him. He then posted a video of himself killing an elderly gentleman on the street.
In the video, Stephens is driving down the street and stops on East 93rd in Cleveland. He sees an elderly man walking and tells the camera that he has found who he’s about to kill, “this old dude.” Stephens then approaches the man and tells him to say “Joy Lane” into the camera, telling him, “she’s the reason this is about to happen to you.” Then he shoots him in the head and goes back to his car. “That motherf*cker’s dead because of you Joy,” he’s heard saying.
Stephens is described as being 6 foot 1, weighing 244 lbs and is bald with a full beard. He is driving a white #Ford Fusion with temporary tags. He was last seen wearing a dark blue/gray striped shirt. He is armed and dangerous.
Stephens used Facebook to place the blame on Joy Lane, his girlfriend of three years.
“I’m killing motherf*ckrs, all because of this bitch… She’s putting me at my pushing point,” he says. “I was living over there with her, I woke up Friday and I just couldn’t take it anymore, I just left. Here I am, massacring motherf*ckers. Today is the Easter Day massacre.”
Stephens also claimed to have lost everything due to a gambling problem and is at his breaking point.
