Stephens shot and killed himself Tuesday in Erie County, Pennsylvania, after a police chase.

She said the chase slowed suddenly from 50 miles per hour to about 20 miles per hour when the road narrowed from four lanes to two.One of the pursuing troopers picked his spot - in front of an abandoned school - and hit Stephens' bumper to get him to stop.

On Sunday, 37-year-old Steve Stephens when murdered an elderly man in Cleveland, Ohio, and then posted video of the crime on Facebook.

"At a little after 11, state police officers received information that Stephens' white vehicle was parked in a McDonald's auto park", said Williams.

People quickly took to Twitter, saying that the workers deserve the $50,000 reward for finding and helping lead police to Stephens Tuesday.

"As the officers approached that vehicle, Steve Stephens took his own life", Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams said. Williams added that police "wanted to bring him in safely" so they could talk to him to try to understand his motives. "One thing I do want to say, is that I forgive [Stephens]". "She's the reason that this is about to happen to you,"Stephens reportedly said".

Stephens had been on the run for almost 48 hours after posting grisly video on Facebook of himself shooting and killing 74-year-old Robert Godwin, Sr.at 695 East 93rd Street in Cleveland.

Facebook slaying suspect Steve Stephens was undone by a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets and an order of fries. Two cars were in front of his, and police were on the way by the time Stephens reached the pickup window. A few minutes after that, he went live and confessed, the company said. She mentioned his Facebook posts and Stephens claimed to have killed 14 people.

After a brief exchange in which Mr Godwin was asked to say a woman's name - that of Stephens' ex-girlfriend, Joy Lane - he was shot dead.

"Our hearts go out to family and friends of Robert Godwin Sr. When they said he was dead, it was fine with me", Jones told WSFA.
