BREAKING: Cleveland Facebook Killer Kills Himself After Police Chase
According to Pennsylvania police, “Facebook killer” Steve Stephens has killed himself Tuesday morning after a high-speed chase. Officers spotted Stephens in Erie, Pennsylvania, reports Fox News.
Members of the state police reportedly attempted a traffic stop and “after a brief pursuit, Stephens shot and killed himself.” The surprising news came shortly after a police press conference in Cleveland where a spokesman said authorities had no idea where Stephens was.
Stephens had shot and killed senior citizen Robert Godwin seemingly at random on Sunday in Cleveland. He recorded the encounter on his phone and uploaded the horrific video to Facebook. Godwin’s family said he had no connection to Stephens or a woman Stephens mentioned.
Cleveland police on Monday advised residents of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana and New York that Stephens could be in those states and the manhunt for Stephens soon expanded nationwide. Erie County, Pa. is about 100 miles Northeast of Cleveland.
