McDonald's drive-thru employee helped stop Facebook killer

Williams said the Cleveland police had received over 400 tips regarding Stephens' whereabouts. "As the vehicle was spinning out of control from the PIT maneuver, Stephens pulled a pistol and shot himself in the head".

Around 11am Tuesday, Stephens went through a McDonald's drive-thru in Erie, Pennsylvania, where an employee recognized him from television reports and called 911. When the vehicle fled, officers followed in a short pursuit.

"We are grateful that this has ended", Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams told reporters.

Steve Stephens shot himself shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday after a McDonald's employee spotted him near Erie, Pennsylvania and state police pursued him in a brief chase. It took the social network almost two hours to remove the content, which was soon ubiquitous on other platforms such as YouTube.

PBS NewsHour will update this story as it develops.

Facebook has since announced it was launching a review for reporting harmful content. "We were just trying to make sure she could get in contact with state police", restaurant owner Tom Ducharme said.

Officials in the OH city said they were looking for Steve Stephens in connection with the one confirmed killing.

A multistate manhunt for the suspect in a random killing that Cleveland police say he recorded and posted to Facebook is entering its third day.

Facebook said it removed the video of the shooting 23 minutes after learning of it.

Police said Steve Stephens, 37, murdered a man on East 93rd Street in Cleveland Sunday afternoon. "But we know we need to do better", Justin Osofsky, the company's vice-president for global operations, said in a statement. Detectives spoke with the suspect on Sunday by cellphone and tried to persuade him to surrender, police said.

"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.
