BREAKING NEWS: FACEBOOK KILLER MAN HUNT IS OVER.

The search for the man who killed a grandfather then posted it to Facebook is over. The man has committed suicide.

Steve Stephens, 37, had been on the run since he allegedly gunned down a stranger, Robert Godwin Snr, 74, at random on Sunday afternoon in the US city of Cleveland.

In a video on Facebook the suspect boasted of killing more than a dozen other victims, but police say they have not linked him to any other victims or incidents.

In another video he rambled on about breaking up with "the love of my life" and admitted losing "everything" gambling at a casino.

Mr Godwin, father-of-10 and great-grandfather, was collecting discarded aluminium cans when he was approached and fatally shot in the street.
