Police are currently searching for a man named Steve Stephens who has been accused of shooting and killing an elderly man on Facebook Live Sunday afternoon and claims to be targeting members of fraternities and sororities.

In a Facebook Live video that was uploaded to his account on Sunday afternoon, Steve Stephens is seen getting out of his car and shooting and killing an elderly man.

Stephens has also written several Facebook statuses (on his now deactivated account) claiming that he has killed more than 13 other people. He states that the additional killings are real and that he is shooting people because of an ex-girlfriend.

Through his posts, Steven insinuates that he is a member of Omega Psi Phi and the reason we are posting this article to Watch The Yard is because when he says that he will randomly shoot “Greeks” in the head “until he gets caught,” there is a good chance that he is referring to members of Black fraternities or sororities.

According to Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia, the shooting that was posted to Facebook Live happened on East 93rd Street just south of the Interstate 90 in the city’s Glenville neighborhood.

Stephens is 6-feet 1-inch tall, weighs about 240 pounds and has a full beard. He was wearing a dark-striped polo shirt at the time of the shooting and the Facebook Live broadcasts.

The police are saying that he is driving a white or cream-colored SUV and is considered armed and dangerous.

“I snapped, dog, I just snapped,” he says to a man on the phone, saying he shamed his fraternity with his actions. “I just killed 13 motherf*ckers man. That’s what I did, I killed 13 people and I’m about to keep killing until they catch me. F*ck it.”

In another video, he says, “The people I’m going to kill today, it’s Easter Sunday, it’s not my first. I’ve got a few people that’s over here off this street … it’s an abandoned house, I kind of lost count. I didn’t keep score. But I’m going to keep score today. I’m bout to have me some fun, I guess.”

He also claims he is going to randomly shoot “Greeks” in the head until he gets caught.

“The vengeance is about to happen,” he says.

He is still on the loose and is dangerous and thus we want to spread the word to as many members of Black fraternities and sororities that they contact members who live in Cleveland to make sure that they are safe and avoiding this man at all costs. This is about the safety of our community which is being targeted by this man.

Here is the video where he mentions shooting “Greeks”.

Here is one of the Facebook posts that he posted.

We will refrain from posting the video of the actual shooting on this website, but it can be found here.

UPDATE: A group of close friends and fraternity brothers of Cleveland murder suspect Steve Stephens have opened up to the local news station with a personal message to Stephens to turn himself in. Click here to watch.

Please share this with as many members of Black fraternities and sororities who live in the Cleveland area as you can and let them know to be careful.

A student has been taken into custody after stabbing and killing one student and injuring three others at UT Austin today.

The suspect was later identified by police as 21-year-old Kendrex J. White, who attended UT and member of the class of 2018.

According to UT Police Chief David Carter, officers responded to a call from the Gregory Gym in the 2100 block of Speedway before 2 p.m., less than two minutes after receiving a call. The officer found White walking around the scene with a Bowie-style hunting knife and took him into custody.

The Police Chief stated that White walked up to four male students and attacked them. Austin-Travis County EMS tweeted that the survivors of the attack sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

We were able to get find the suspects Twitter account and although it he has not sent out a tweet since June of last year, he states that he is “Future Doctor #UT18 Bio Major pre-Med.”

Currently, Watch The Yard’s founder happens to be in Austin and is interviewing students.

“I think it is really crazy and I think the University should have gotten the  out to us faster,” a sophomore told us.

“We were outside for like 20-minutes and did not know what was happening and no-one knew if the guy was caught,” a freshman who had left campus for saftey told us.

“They have monthly sirens to check to make sure that if there were a threat students should stay indoors and the one time they should actually use the sirens, they don’t. I had friends in their s=rooms at Jester that didn’t know what was going on until I texted them. And they were in the vicinity of the attack,” said another freshman.

We will continue to be update this post as more information becomes available.
