On Sunday, Steve Stephens posted a horrifying video of himself killing Robert Godwin, a father of 10 and grandfather of 14. The video was later removed.

Stephens, 37, was charged with aggravated murder in the shooting death.

Now, according to Pennsylvania State Police, Stephens fatally shot himself Tuesday.

"Steve Stephens was spotted this morning by PSP members in Erie County," Pennsylvania State Police tweeted. "After a brief pursuit, Stephens shot and killed himself."

Cleveland’s police chief said that authorities had received more than 400 tips as to Stephens' whereabouts.

Godwin's family said Monday they forgave the alleged gunman.

"Each one of us forgives the killer, the murderer," Tonya Godwin-Baines, a daughter of the 74-year-old victim, told Cleveland TV station WJW on Monday. "We want to wrap our arms around him."
