Man sought in Cleveland Facebook killing shoots himself to death

"We have closure in regards to the search for Steve Stephens", Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said during an April 18 press conference, according to WLTX. He sped away, and police then hit his auto with their vehicle, causing him to lose control and spin out, at which point Stephens shot himself, Teper said.

Just before Facebook's conference kicked off, Pennsylvania State Police reported Tuesday it found Stephens in Erie County, Pa., on Tuesday morning. Stephens fled with officers in pursuit.

The man who gunned down a Cleveland retiree and posted a video of the crime on Facebook killed himself Tuesday during a police chase in Pennsylvania that began when a McDonald's employee recognized him.

The video of the killing was on the social media site for about three hours before it was removed.

PBS NewsHour will update this story as it develops.

In the footage Stephens pulls over in a vehicle on a street in Cleveland as he says: "Find me somebody to kill, gonna kill this guy right here".

The latest cards are based on the same Ellesmere GPU architecture as last year's RX 480, so there isn't a ton to talk about. Although the increase in clock speeds might not seem very impressive, these numbers are relative to the reference cards.

Stephens, 37, became the subject of the nationwide manhunt after posting what looked to be his gruesome shooting of 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. on a Cleveland street and a later confession to it on Facebook Live.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf thanked police for their actions during the pursuit and said that no one else had been hurt.

Stephens posted video of the shooting to his Facebook page and went live on Facebook to confess to the murder.

McDonald's staff tipped off police about the location of Facebook killer Steve Stephens after he ordered 20 Chicken McNuggets.

Police would not speculate on what was behind the killing, but videos Stephens posted showed him talking about losing everything he had to gambling and trouble with his girlfriend. However, she said she still forgives him. "But we know we need to do better", Justin Osofsky, the company's vice-president for global operations, said in a statement.

Joy Lane expressed remorse for the family of Robert Godwin Sr., whose shooting death was shared on Facebook, as two of Godwin's daughters repeatedly told Lane she was not at fault for the tragedy.
