Cleveland's Shooter Steve Stephens Kills Himself After Dramatic Police Chase


A man accused of killing a pensioner and posting gruesome video of the murder on Facebook killed himself in his car after a police chase, officials have confirmed.

Steve Stephens, 37, had been on the run since he allegedly gunned down a stranger, Robert Godwin Snr, 74, at random on Sunday afternoon in the US city of Cleveland.

In a video on Facebook the suspect boasted of killing more than a dozen other victims, but police say they have not linked him to any other victims or incidents.

In another video he rambled on about breaking up with "the love of my life" and admitted losing "everything" gambling at a casino.

Mr Godwin, father-of-10 and great-grandfather, was collecting discarded aluminium cans when he was approached and fatally shot in the street.
