U.S. serial killer fatally shoots himself after brief pursuit

Search For Facebook Killer Continues

Search For Facebook Killer Continues

Police said it wasn't clear whether Stephens had any help while he was on the run or where he had been and that investigators will try to retrace his steps. The nationwide manhunt had continued for two days, reported Reuters.

The family of a 74-year-old man who was shot and killed on Easter Sunday met with the killer's former girlfriend, CNN reports.

It speaks volumes about the family from which Godwin was stolen away by a gunman, who killed himself Tuesday after police spotted him about 100 miles from the city.

A nationwide manhunt in the USA came to an end Tuesday when a man accused of posting a murder video on Facebook shot himself after a short police chase, authorities said.

Facebook released a statement on Monday detailing how it will be reviewing its "reporting flows" to allow people report content that violates Facebook policies "as easily and quickly as possible".

Police say a man suspected of randomly shooting a grandfather on an OH street and posting video of the killing to Facebook has taken his own life.

"We lost our dad, but this mother lost her son, his children lost their dad", Godwin-Baines said.

Hernandez is survived by numerous relatives, including his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, and his 4-year-old daughter. He had attempted to block the door from the inside by jamming it with various items, prison officials said.

Stephens was wanted on murder charges over the shooting of Robert Godwin Sr on Sunday (16 April).

"She's the reason why this is about to happen to you", Stephens said on a video posted on Facebook.

In several posts, he claimed to have killed as many as a dozen people, but police have not found evidence to support that claim.

Authorities in multiple states had been searching for him since then.

Police soon arrived, and after a short auto chase, the so-called Facebook Killer ended his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot. "One thing I do want to say, is that I forgive [Stephens]".
