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

Pennsylvania State Police tweeted that Steve Stephens was spotted on Tuesday morning in Erie County.

“After a brief pursuit, Stephens shot and killed himself,” they tweeted.

Stephens, 37, allegedly shot dead 74-year-old Robert Godwin as the victim walked home from Easter lunch on Sunday afternoon in Cleveland.

His mobile phone signal was last tracked on Sunday afternoon in Erie, Pennsylvania, 100 miles (160km) from where police say he shot Mr Godwin.
