According to CNN, 37-year-old Steve Stephens posted a video of himself claiming that he had committed multiple murders and was going to keep killing.

The youth behavioral health agency employee cited a bad breakup with his girlfriend for his rage.

In a video he posted, Stephens drives up to an elderly man in Cleveland named Robert Godwin and demands that he say the name of a woman suspected to be Stephens’ former girlfriend.

When the confused Godwin doesn’t respond correctly, Stephens is heard saying “She’s the reason why this is about to happen to you” before firing a gun.

The Godwin is seen falling to the ground. A father of 10 and a grandfather of 14, he was killed for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time on his way home from an Easter meal.

After receiving hundreds of tips about Stephens’ appearance in multiple states, authorities spotted him in Erie County, Pennsylvania following a tip by someone who recognized his vehicle.

Pennsylvania State Police reported, "After a brief pursuit, Stephens shot and killed himself."

Police have not found evidence yet of any other murders committed by Stephens. He did not have a criminal record.

Everyone close to him who have been questioned expressed shock and horror at his behavior, saying that it did not match with what they knew of him.

According to Fox News, Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams expressed relief that Stephens was no longer a danger to the community but also said he wished he could have questioned Stephens to find out why he did what he did.

Please pray for Godwin’s family as they deal with their loss.
