Twinsburg schools increase security after Facebook shooting

TWINSBURG - As we continue to learn more about Steve Stephens, wanted for the murder of Robert Godwin Sr. that was captured on video on Sunday, communities that have any ties to the suspect are taking precautions.

Twinsburg School Superintendent Kathi Powers issued an email to district parents on Monday because, "I understand that the suspect either frequented or recently lived in the City of Twinsburg.  As such, I have been in contact throughout the day today with the Twinsburg Police Department in efforts to prepare for the return of our students tomorrow."

Powers says she has been advised by police that Stephens is likely well out of the school district's vicinity.

She writes, "Given the fact that Sunday’s tragic event raised the concerns and anxiety of our residents, and as an extra precaution, the Twinsburg Police Department will provide additional police presence at this afternoon’s athletic events as well as throughout the school day tomorrow.  This will include additional police presence during recess for our elementary school students."
