McDonald's worker tips off police to Facebook killer

Only Steve Knows: Police Baffled by Facebook Video Killing

Pennsylvania State Police look over a auto as they investigate the scene where Steve Stephens, the suspect in the random killing of a Cleveland retiree posted on Facebook, was found shot dead Tuesday, April 18, 2.

The man who police said posted a video of himself on Facebook killing an elderly man shot and killed himself after a "brief pursuit" by Pennsylvania State Police officers. He sped away, and police then hit his auto with their vehicle, causing him to lose control and spin out, at which point Stephens shot himself, Teper said. She then saw officers approach the vehicle.

In a third video 11 minutes later, streamed live from Stephens's auto, he said he meant to kill others.

In the video, Stephens claimed to have killed more than a dozen people.

According to Tye, Stephens pulled away from the drive-thru when he spotted police pulling into the McDonald's parking lot.

But Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams likely spoke for many when he said moments later: "We have so many questions".

He'd said he was "mad at his girlfriend" and - in a phone call shortly before the killing - that he was "shooting people".

"This is something that should not have been shared around the world". A $50,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his capture and prosecution.

A woman called Joy Lane said she had been in a relationship with Stephens for several years. They say he had no known connection to Godwin.

"I feel bad. The last thing that he would have said was my name and (he) didn't know me or why he was saying it".

Zuckerberg told the audience of developers that another top priority for the company is augmented reality, a technology that allows people with smartphones to immerse themselves in a game, fantasy or other animated reality.

"We would like to have brought in Steven peacefully and really talk to him and find out why this happened", he said.

Police were able to chase Stevens after the tip came in, eventually stopping his vehicle using a police maneuver, Officer William Teper Jr. told reporters at a televised news conference.

PSP troopers immediately began to canvas the area for Stephens and located him in his vehicle a short time later.Troopers in marked patrol units initiated a pursuit that lasted approximately two miles.

The police chief said Tuesday that it wasn't clear whether Stephens had any help while he was on the run or where he had been and that investigators will try to retrace he steps.

"All I can say is that I wish he had gone down in a hail of 100 bullets", Godwin's daughter, Brenda Haymon, told CNN.
