A man suspected of randomly shooting a grandfather and posting video of it to Facebook has taken his own life.
Police tracked down Steve Stephens after he was spotted by employees at a drive-thru McDonald’s in Pennsylvania, who stalled his order and rang 911.
State police gave chase and the suspect shot himself “as the vehicle was spinning out of control”, police said.
Stephens, 37, shot dead Robert Godwin, 74, as the victim walked home from Easter lunch on Sunday in Cleveland.
The fugitive’s mobile phone signal was last tracked on Sunday afternoon to Erie, 100 miles (160km) from where Mr Godwin was shot.
