Facebook-murder accused dead after police chase

Authorities in several states are on the lookout for a man police say shot a Cleveland retiree collecting aluminum cans and then posted video of the apparently

The US man wanted for killing an elderly man in OH and then posting a video of the murder on Facebook fatally shot himself on Tuesday after a brief pursuit in neighbouring Pennsylvania, police said.

Troopers from the Pennsylvania State Police pursued him for under a mile before the suspect shot and killed himself, according to Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams. "We would have liked to have brought Steve in peacefully and really talked to him about why this happened".

For the first time since her former boyfriend, Steve Stephens, murdered elderly man Robert Godwin Sr. and posted the video on Facebook, Joy Lane has spoken out. Video of the incident was posted on Facebook.

Authorities in Cleveland urged a nationwide debate on the issue of violence on social media and to find answers to the plague of gun crime rocking America. Police arrived at the scene and chased Stephens to an abandoned school, where a trooper knocked him off the road by hitting his bumper with a "precise immobilization technique" (PIT). He said he "just snapped".

Since Stephens' suicide on Tuesday, Lane has received support from many close to her, but also from two strangers: two of Godwin's daughters.

"I'm not happy he's dead at all, not at all". They said they know Lane did nothing wrong.

Thomas DuCharme, the owner of that Pennsylvania McDonald's restaurant in Erie, said the worker doesn't think of herself as a hero.

Tom Ducharme, owner of the restaurant near Erie, told CNN that Stephens drove up, placed an order and paid an employee, who recognised him and called police.

Asked if McCaffrey is among the "half dozen" three-down backs he said he sees in this draft, Gettleman replied: "He can run it". McGinn also wrote that No. 3 back Christian McCaffrey scored a 21, Tennessee's Alvin Kamara a 24 and Oklahoma's Joe Mixon a 12.

Stephens was found dead as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after being spotted by police in Western Pennsylvania, officials say.

Until the investigation is complete, Williams said, "we won't actually know where he was and what he was doing".

Lane said she's devastated that the victim said her name before he was shot. The Ford Fusion did a half-turn and came to rest at the curb. She then saw officers approach the auto. The one officer just shook his head.
