Chicken nuggets order ended flight of Facebook murder suspect

Responding troopers spotted Stephens leaving the restaurant in Erie and went after him, bumping his auto to try to get it to stop, authorities said. Police caught up with him shortly after the exchange, and, following a brief chase, Stephens shot and killed himself, according to police.

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.

Steve Stephens was accused of shooting Robert Godwin Sr., 74, on a sidewalk on Sunday before fleeing in a auto and uploading a video of the murder to Facebook, becoming the focus of a nationwide manhunt. VIDEO: "Officials at scene of Steve Stephens" vehicle Facebook said it removed the video of the shooting 23 minutes after learning of it.

Rumors that Stephens' phone pinged in the Erie, Pennsylvania area surfaced Monday, but Pennsylvania State Police said in a news conference Tuesday that they "had no direct knowledge" of that.

Joy Lane expressed remorse for the family of Robert Godwin Sr., whose shooting death was shared on Facebook, as two of Godwin's daughters repeatedly told Lane she was not at fault for the tragedy.

Family, friends remember slain Logan County deputy
LeForce was found in an outbuilding near Guthrie, where he surrendered to authorities, Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Emergency crews and law enforcement responded to the scene near I-35 and Mulhall in Logan County, north of Oklahoma City.

Stephens, 37, had posted video of him killing Mr Goodwin in an apparently random attack after spotting him while driving in Cleveland. He tells the man to say a woman's name and pulls out his gun.

The man known as the "Facebook killer" may have been taken down by a group of McDonald's employees in Erie, Pennsylvania, authorities said Tuesday. She said that it was her slain father who taught her, through the example of his life, how to forgive.

Stephens, AKA Stevie Steve, is then reported to have said that his girlfriend drove him to commit the crime.

Stephens supposedly killed Godwin in an attempt to get his mother and girlfriend to get in contact with him.
