A multi-state manhunt ensued, and there was no sign of Stephens until Tuesday at a little after 11 a.m. Thomas DuCharme Jr., the owner of an Erie McDonald's, said a worker there recognized Stephens as he came through the drive-thru.

The pursuit came after Stephens was spotted at a McDonald's in Erie, where workers reported Stephens arriving at the drive-thru, where he ordered 20 chicken nuggets and fries. Authorities say Stephens shot and killed himself during the pursuit.

Shortly after 11 a.m., there was a short police pursuit and when officers approached the vehicle, Stephens auto spun in circles and that's when Stephens shot himself.

For two days, authorities across the country scrambled to find Stephens, the man wanted for the death of Robert Godwin - a self-taught mechanic and grandfather of 14.

"As the vehicle was spinning out of control from the PIT maneuver, Stephens pulled a pistol and shot himself in the head", Pennsylvania State Police said. Williams said Steve Stephens, who randomly killed a Cleveland retiree and posted video of the crime on Face.

Stephens also claimed he had killed more people, but Cleveland Police say they have no known additional victims linked to him.

Law enforcement officials said his cellphone was last tracked Sunday afternoon in Erie, Pennsylvania, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) east of Cleveland.


Stephens took his own life as officers approached the vehicle, according to Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams.

Gail Wheeler, of Erie, said she was stopped at a light at the McDonald's when Stephens came "whipping out" of the parking lot, almost hitting her.

Lane said she and Stephens dated for a while, and had discussed getting engaged, but they broke up and she urged him to seek help for gambling issues. He blamed her for what was about to happen. His auto did a half-turn and came to rest against the curb, and she heard a gunshot, she said.

The company said it disabled Stephen's account within 23 minutes of receiving the first report about the video of the fatal shooting and two hours after receiving any report. The company has since announced it is launching a review for reporting harmful content.

The Cleveland Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation put the word out nationwide that Stephens was likely still driving the white Ford Fusion with the temporary license tag of #363630.

Detectives spoke with the suspect on Sunday by cellphone and tried to persuade him to surrender, police said.
