Police investigating Stephens, though, say they have found no evidence indicating he actually killed the 13 other people.

WEWS-TV reports that a video Stephens posted to Facebook past year showed him rapidly firing at targets at the range in Willoughby and being warned to stop by an employee.

McDonald's staff tipped off police about the location of Facebook killer Steve Stephens after he ordered 20 Chicken McNuggets. She said even after they parted she was still trying to get him to reach out for help with a gambling habit.

"(I want to) hug you, tell you it's not your fault and love you", Godwin-Baines told Lane during the encounter filmed by WJW, which CNN said was a Cleveland affiliate.

Restaurant owner Thomas DuCharme Jr and a supervisor told him his fries were delayed, but he eventually drove off and was chased by police before he stopped and shot himself dead.

"We would prefer that it had not ended this way because there are a lot of questions I'm sure that, not only the family, but the city in general would've had for Steve as to why this transpired", said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams.

Williams said Pennsylvania state police received a tip shortly after 11 a.m. (1500GMT) that the auto Stephens was using had been found at a McDonald's parking lot near Erie County.

Pennsylvania State Police said Tuesday that Stephens, 37, fatally shot himself following a nationwide manhunt.

The WKYC Facebook page has been filled with people thanking and congratulating the McDonald's employee for their bravery.

Facebook drew criticism for not removing the gruesome video until two hours after Stephens posted it.

"We are in the early stages of this", Williams said. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg commented on the incident following criticism over the social-media giant's failure to more closely monitor violence on its platforms. "I've been told that I'm the one who should have died".
