Cavaliers pause for moment of silence in memory of slain Clevelander Robert Godwin Sr.

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cavaliers paused for a moment of silence Monday to honor slain Clevelander Robert Godwin Sr. prior to the start of Game 2 of their Eastern Conference playoff opening series against the Indiana Pacers.

Police say Godwin, a 74-year-old father of 10 and grandfather of 14, was fatally shot by Steve Stephens, 37, of Cleveland on Easter Sunday afternoon.

Facebook Live video, published by Stephens, showed him approach Godwin on a sidewalk in the city’s Glenville neighborhood and fire the fatal shot.

Stephens remains at large and is the subject of a regional manhunt.
