Facebook killer takes his own life as police close in

Facebook killer takes his own life as police close in”

The Pennsylvania McDonald's employees who tipped off police and tried to stall Facebook murder suspect Steve Stephens are being called heroes on social media.

Police expanded their search beyond state lines with belief that Stephens may have left Ohio.

Acting on a tip from the McDonald's, state troopers spotted Stephens leaving the restaurant in Erie and went after him, bumping his auto to try to get it to stop, authorities said.

The man who police say shot a Cleveland retiree at random and posted video of the killing on Facebook pulled up to the drive-thru window of a McDonald's restaurant outside Erie, Pennsylvania, and waited for his order. He shot himself in the head after the auto spun and came to a stop, police said.

He then posted the video of the killing to Facebook, where it remained for more than two hours before the social network removed it. He took his McNuggets and whipped out of the parking lot, almost hitting Gail Wheeler, 54, a retail operations manager from Erie who was on her way home from the grocery store.

By the time he pulled out of the driveway and onto Buffalo Road, state police were behind him, DuCharme said.

Wheeler said she followed the chase and saw a trooper clip Stephens' rear bumper.

In the video, Stephens told Godwin the name of his girlfriend and said, "She's the reason that this is about to happen to you".

Stephens was the target of an intense manhunt in the Easter Sunday slaying of mechanic Robert Godwin.

Cleveland Police issued an aggravated murder warrant for Stephens and a $50,000 reward was offered for information leading to his capture.
