WATCH: Funeral held for Facebook shooting victim

- Family and friends gathered in Ohio Saturday to honor Robert Godwin Sr., a 74-year-old man who was the victim of a fatal shooting that was posted on Facebook. 

Godwin Sr. was gunned down Sunday afternoon while collecting aluminum cans shortly after spending time with some of his children for Easter.

The man who randomly killed Godwin posted a video of the shooting on Facebook. Thirty-seven-year-old gunman Steve Stephens fatally shot himself after a 2-mile police chase in Erie, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday.

Godwin was a retired foundry worker and a father of 10. Former neighbors, friends and relatives described him as a good man at a memorial set up at the site of his death.

The funeral is open to the public.
