Steve Stephens The Notorius Facebook killer Is Dead

Police say Steve Stephens, the man suspected of randomly shooting an elderly man on a Cleveland street and posting video of the barbaric act to Facebook has killed himself.

The shooter’s car was spotted by a member of the public on Tuesday morning outside a McDonald’s in the city of Erie in Pennsylvania and alerted police. State troopers gave chase and the suspect shot himself after a brief chase.

Stephens, 37, shot dead Robert Godwin, 74, as the victim walked home from Easter lunch on Sunday in Cleveland.

The fugitive’s mobile phone signal was last tracked on Sunday afternoon to Erie, 100 miles (160km) from where Mr Godwin was gunned down on a pavement.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson told a news conference: “We have closure in regards to the search for Steve Stephens.”

State police pursued him for less than two miles before executing a tactic that involves ramming the rear of a vehicle to make it lose control.

“As the vehicle was spinning out of control from the PIT manoeuvre, Stephens pulled a pistol and shot himself in the head,” Pennsylvania state police said in a statement.

During the encounter there were no injuries to members of the public or officers, and Stephens was pronounced dead at the scene, added Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams.

But investigators said they were still baffled as to what motivated Stephens – who worked as a case manager for a children’s mental health facility.

Mr Williams said: “We would like to have brought Steve in peacefully and really talk to him to find out exactly why this happened… find out why he did what he did and what drove him to this.”
