In January, four people in Chicago were arrested after they allegedly beat and taunted a mentally disabled man live on the social media site.

Perhaps the most disturbing part of this case is the video the suspect recorded while running wild on a killing spree.

The public is being warned not to approach Steve Stephens - who officials say works for a behavioral health agency that supports families and children.

The mayor of Cleveland, Frank Jackson, said that he wanted Mr Stephens to know that "he will eventually be caught".

In a statement, a Facebook spokesperson said the shooting was a "horrific crime".

Stephens said in the video that he has killed more than a dozen people, police said, though they have announced no other victims.

The shooting happened on East 93 Street just south of the Interstate 90 in the city's Glenville neighborhood, Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said, told the Plain Dealer.

Nancy Kortemeyer of Beech Brook confirmed Stephens is an employee.

Wenger suggested that Ozil had been "punished" by the fans more than other players but added: "We live in a world of extremes". The win was marred by an injury-time fightback by rivals Spurs against Swansea.

Police said the shooter broadcasted the deadly shooting live on his social media page and claimed to have committed other homicides.

In the video, which has since been taken down from the social media website, a auto door is seen opening as the suspect mutters and swears to himself: "Found me somebody I'm going to kill, this guy right here, this old dude". His Facebook posts mentioned that he had "lost everything to gambling, "according to NBC News". Residents of Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and MI, in particular, were asked to be on the alert and told not to approach Stephens if they spot him.

Then as he please "I don't know, I don't know nobody by that name", a gun can be seen and a gunshot heard.

USA police are searching the Cleveland area and is urging Stephens to turn himself in after he shot and killed an elderly passerby this morning claiming to be angry at a woman.
