(Associated Press) - Pennsylvania police say they kept a close watch on an Erie casino in recent days because the man who recorded himself killing an elderly man in Cleveland had a history of gambling.

The suspect, Steve Stephens, shot himself in the head Tuesday morning in Erie after Pennsylvania troopers spun his car around to end a brief pursuit. The chase began after a worker at a McDonald's called authorities to report that Stephens had ordered food at the drive-thru.

Pennsylvania State Police Major William Teper Jr. said he was only aware through social media that Stephens' cellphone had been located Sunday afternoon in Erie just hours after killing 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. on a Cleveland street.

Teper says investigators are trying to determine Stephens' movements in the area.

An autopsy is planned for Wednesday.
