Police say a man suspected of shooting a grandfather on an OH street and posting video of the killing to Facebook has shot himself dead.
Stephens' mother told CNN that she had spoken with her son Sunday and said, he was "mad with his girlfriend". Stephens pulled up to the next window, where restaurant owner Thomas DuCharme Jr. and a supervisor tried stalling him by telling him his fries were delayed.
State troopers responded to a sighting Stephen's Ford Fusion in the parking lot of a McDonalds' in Erie at 11 a.m.
Cleveland's police chief, Calvin Williams, agrees with this sentiment.

Sources tell WKYC's Monica Robins that the person who gave the tip that led to his location will receive the $50,000 reward. The Pennsylvania police tweeted: "After a brief pursuit, he shot and killed himself".
Steve Stephens was wanted in a slaying that he apparently recorded Sunday in Cleveland, and posted on Facebook, setting off a manhunt that spread Monday across the north eastern United States.

The chase lasted 2 miles, and troopers managed to disable Stephens' auto, state police said.
One of Godwin's daughters, Debbie Godwin, said she wished Stephens had been captured.
Godwin's sister said she feels, "Angry sometimes", over Robert's death and that she was hoping Stephens would be brought to justice. But he began to get more nervous the longer he waited.
Another week, another technological terror that makes me question my love for social media and technology in general.
At the same time, police found themselves with no signal from the suspect's phone and no Global Positioning System signal coming from any device in the vehicle.
They know the pain they can cause by inadvertently forcing their friends and acquaintances to witness crimes such as this.
