Facebook killer shoots himself during police chase

Howard Terry | 21 April, 2017, 00:31

A savvy McDonald's employee raised the alarm as Steve Stephens, the man who shot a 74-year-old great-grandfather in cold blood, pulled up at a drive-thru in Pennsylvania following a three-day nationwide manhunt.

Facebook on Monday said it would review how it monitors violent footage and other objectionable material in response to the killing after Stephens' post was visible on the social media site for about two hours.

State police said officers spotted Steve Stephens earlier in the day in Erie County, which borders OH, after they received a tip that his vehicle was in a McDonald's parking lot. While the vehicle was spinning out of control Stephens pulled a pistol and shot himself in the head, Pennsylvania State Police said.

Police say a man suspected of randomly shooting a grandfather on an OH street and posting video of the killing to Facebook has taken his own life.

Cleveland police are searching for the person who they say killed a man and then uploaded a video of the crime to Facebook on Sunday.

"I'm not happy he's dead at all", Debbie Godwin, a daughter of the victim, told the Associated Press.

Cleveland Police Chief Calvin D. Williams said he regretted they were unable to capture Stephens alive.

"[The employee] said, 'I think that's the guy. I can't believe I'm never going to talk to my father no more", she said through tears.

The intersection is less than two miles from Pennsylvania State Police Troop E headquarters. Henry Sayers, the restaurant manager, recognized him from the news and called police, according to The New York Times.

Police radio dispatches reveal how Pennsylvania State Police were following Steve Stephens' white Ford Fusion in Erie, Pa. His family says he was walking E. 93rd Street collecting aluminum cans prior to Easter dinner when he was shot dead.

Facebook wasn't made aware of a live video containing Stephens' confession until after it had ended, Osofsky said.

"And this is a prime example, this is something that should not have been shared around the world".

Stephens, 37, was named among the FBI's "most wanted" amid a $50,000 reward.
