The manhunt continues. This article will be updated once more information arises.
Update: 4/17/2017 Suspect still at large, and Facebook stated that he was not live streaming –
“Late Sunday, a Facebook representative confirmed that the video of the shooting was not broadcast live as indicated in an earlier version of this story. The video was recorded and uploaded.”
That source updated its article with an Editor’s note at 12:34am 4/17/17 and I’m Just Here To Make You Think’s CEO and Independent Journalist, Dane Calloway tweeted this information late yesterday evening, before it became news to the public –
Dane’s statement was definitely correct. This changes the ball game as well. This could possibly mean that this could’ve happened at an earlier time then when it was initially reported at 2pm 4/16/17, or even days ago.
That could be the real reason why the Cleveland police are having such a hard time with tracking this guy down at this time.
Stephens also took to Instagram last night posting this below, we screenshotted a screenshot of a screenshot of the post since the IG account (steve__stephens) was made private, and shortly deleted after posting this picture below.
UPDATE: 4/17/17 2:07pmET – Confirmed – The image above is a fake image. The image was clipped, cut and edited from his YouTube channel, from a video he posted months ago, of him walking around in a crowd during a Cleveland Cavaliers game.
