Funeral for Robert Godwin, Sr. scheduled for Saturday

The technology giant's chief executive said "our hearts go out to the friends and family" of Mr Godwin, who was shot dead by Steve Stephens in the U.S. city of Cleveland in Sunday in an apparent random killing.

Coroner Lyell Cook told Action News Wednesday afternoon that the autopsy had not yet been completed, and Cook had not made a legal identification. While the vehicle was spinning out of control Stephens pulled a pistol and shot himself in the head, Pennsylvania State Police said. Stephens posted video on Facebook of Godwin's death.

"I'm sorry it ended the way it did", said Maggie Green. Stephens uploaded video of the killing to Facebook, resulting in a two-day search.

Joy Lane, Stephens' former girlfriend, told CNN affiliate WJW she was devastated the victim said her name before he was shot. According to the restaurant's manager, Henry Sayers, "He just took his nuggets and said: 'I have to go, and drove off".

The funeral for Robert Godwin, Sr., the man shot and killed by Steve Stephens on Easter Sunday, will be held this Saturday.

"I've got a lot of negative comments".

But Godwin-Baines said her father instilled within his children the value of forgiveness.

As for the reward, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said, "There is an award up to $50,000 for the arrest of Mr. Steve Stephens".

"I'm just very proud of my staff and how they handled it", Tom Ducharme, the owner of the McDonald's franchise, told NBC News.

"(Our parents) didn't talk it, they lived it. People would do things to us and we would say "Dad are you really going to forgive them, really?' and he would say 'Yes, we have to", Godwin-Baines said.

Brave: The brave employees, who worked here in Erie, Pennsylvania, got Stephens to wait while they called 911 by telling him that his fries weren't ready. "The minute he turned out on Buffalo Road, the state police were right behind him at that point, so he couldn't have gotten more than 100 yards before the police were behind him".

Police soon arrived, and after a short auto chase, the so-called Facebook Killer ended his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot.
