State Police confirm Stephens Identity

In white car stopped on Buffalo Road

Facebook murder: No GPS on suspect's car

Erie PA - Multiple sources are now confirming that the person found dead in a white car on Buffalo Road is Steve Stephens, the man wanted for a Cleveland shooting death that was posted on Facebook.

The wound is believed to be self-inflicted, although Coroner Lyell Cook has not confirmed that.

He is at the scene.

Police say shortly after 11 o'clock police stopped a white Ford believed to be Stephen's.

Police cleared an area from Downing Avenue at Prospect to Buffalo Road at Thomspon.  

It is believed that police first became aware of the vehicle at the McDonald's on Buffalo Road and followed the vehicle into the city where the stop was made just west of Downing Avenue.
