McDonald's employees helped nab the Facebook murder suspect

- Pennsylvania State Police say the suspect in the random killing of a Cleveland retiree posted on Facebook has shot and killed himself after a brief pursuit.

Police say that Steve Stephens killed himself during a police chase in Erie, Pennsylvania, Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

A McDonald's employee recognized him and told Stephens the fries were not ready in order to stall for time while another employee called 911.

The break in the case came when police received a tip that Stephens was at the McDonald's in Erie, in far western Pennsylvania about 100 miles east of Cleveland, where he ordered a 20-piece Chicken McNuggets and fries. Although Stephens is dead, Jones said he has not found peace. Police claim that, while attacking him, Stephens said in the video that his girlfriend drove him to commit the crime.

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. He shot himself in the head as the vehicle spun out of control. The video remained on the social network for about two hours before it was taken down.

His auto did a half-turn and came to rest against the curb, and she heard a gunshot, she said. She said even after they parted she was still trying to get him to reach out for help with a gambling habit. "I believe he shot himself". WKYC will stream it live in the video above.

On Monday evening, Facebook announced that it was launching a review for reporting harmful content following the killing.

Authorities are providing an update on the pursuit of Stephens and his ensuing death.

A Cleveland police news conference was scheduled for noon ET but had not yet started as of 12:15 p.m. Facebook says, "we know we need to do better".

During the annual F8 developers conference on Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg'made a cursory mention of a murder video posted to Facebook, saying the company would do everything to prevent such tragedies.

Debbie Godwin added: "It's bad enough that you kill him but you record the killing on Facebook?"

Stephens was wanted on an aggravated murder charge in the death of a 74-year-old retired man in Cleveland on Sunday.
