An eyewitness says murder suspect Steve Stephens was roaming the parking lot of his ex-girlfriend's Twinsburg home Saturday with "a mean look" on his face.

The eyewitness, who asked not to be identified, said he was watching television Easter Sunday evening when Stephens' photo flashed across the screen.

"I saw him the day before the shooting and he just had a mean look on his face," he said. "He didn't look too happy."

Twinsburg police are guarding the home where no one was home today, but neighbors are grateful for the protection.

Glen Johnston was in Las Vegas when he received a text message about what was unfolding on his street back home.

"Got a text message that police were here, SWAT was here, the street was on lockdown," said Johnston. "You never know what's going to happen."

Twinsburg police say they have received no calls for service to the home but police did recover weapons from the home during a search there Monday night. 

Court records show Stephens has listed the address as his home since 2001.
