Tip and Minaj went to Instagram Sunday (April 16) to speak out on murder suspect Steven Stephens.
I feel compelled to post this for everyone in Cleveland. I just watched this man shoot & kill their elderly father in cold blood live on social media. It's by far one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen. He's claiming to have already killed 15 random INNOCENT ppl & still looking for more. So I'm praying for the victims' families and additional intended victims that God will have mercy & spare their lives on this #ResurrectionSunday
