Someone spotted Stephens’ white Ford Fusion in the parking lot of a McDonald’s near Erie and called authorities, Pennsylvania State Police said.Stephens fled, and state troopers gave chase.

One trooper performed a “PIT” maneuver, a strategic way of ramming a car to disable it. “As the vehicle was spinning out of control from the PIT maneuver, Stephens pulled a pistol and shot himself in the head,” Pennsylvania State Police said.
