Steve Stephens was the centre of a huge police manhunt in the U.S. after the shooting of a pensioner in Cleveland. He shot himself in the head after the auto spun and came to a stop, police said.

Later in the day, Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams officially stated "the search for Steve Stephens has ended".

"We would have liked to have brought Steve in peacefully and really talked to him about why this happened".

Stephens, who was 37, posted video on Facebook of his seemingly random killing of 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr.in Cleveland on Sunday.

Pennsylvania State Police say the manhunt for the alleged "Facebook Killer" Steve Stephens is over.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg addressed the "Facebook Killer" tragedy at the beginning of his company's annual developer's conference on Tuesday morning.

The WKYC Facebook page has been filled with people thanking and congratulating the McDonald's employee for their bravery. He said he "just snapped".

In the footage Stephens pulls over in a vehicle on a street in Cleveland as he says: "Find me somebody to kill, gonna kill this guy right here. I'm not happy what you did, but I forgive you".

Lane said her and Stephens were romantically involved for a while and had discussed getting married.

Police confirm Steve Stephens, the suspected OH shooter, was found dead in Erie, Pennsylvania.

Law enforcement officials had said on Monday that Stephens's mobile phone was last tracked on Sunday afternoon near Erie. But Stephens did not wait, he said.

"We disabled the suspect's account within 23 minutes of receiving the first report about the murder video, and two hours after receiving a report of any kind", Osofsky wrote.

"Once a piece of content is reported by users as inappropriate, it is typically reviewed within 24 hours", the report noted.

Before murdering Godwin, Stephens had written on his Facebook page that he wanted to kill someone out of rage toward his ex-girlfriend. She mentioned his Facebook posts and Stephens claimed to have killed 14 people.
