"When I saw him I knew it was him".

Lane told CNN affiliate WJW she was devastated the victim said her name before he was shot.

On Sunday, a Cleveland, Ohio, man claiming to be angry at a former girlfriend, shot and killed Robert Godwin Sr.

Lane spoke about the ordeal and what her life has been like for the past 48 hours after Stephens said her name in the disturbing video, according to the Washington Post.

Godwin can be seen raising his hands in an apparent attempt to ward off his attacker before he is shot once in the head.

The sisters told Lane the killing is not her fault, and they don't hold any ill will toward her.

"The next thing I know, they're approaching the vehicle".

In a rambling video, Steve Stephens said, "I snapped, I just snapped". "For somebody to brutally murder my father like that is unbelievable".

After the Godwin shooting, Green said she called her son, whom she described as calm.

"We can never replace him", she added, crying. Artificial intelligence, for example, plays an important part in this work, helping us prevent the videos from being reshared in their entirety.

The three-day search for Steve Stephens ended Tuesday morning with Stephens killing himself after a brief pursuit by Pennsylvania State Police near Erie, Pa. Stephens was accused of randomly shooting and killing an elderly Cleveland man on Easter Sunday and posting the gruesome video on Facebook.

Just after 11 a.m. today (Tuesday), a female employee at the McDonald's drive-thru pay window in Harborcreek Township recognized Stephens and told her manager.

The Cleveland Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation put the word out nationwide that Stephens was likely still driving the white Ford Fusion with the temporary license tag of #363630. "Basically told him it was going to be a minute for his fries. He was a little nerved up, a little agitated and didn't want to wait, said he had to go".

Stephens fled and Pennsylvania State Police troopers pursued, prompting an officer to ram the auto to disable it. State Police Maj. William Teper Jr. would say only that the tip came from a "concerned citizen".

Police have not yet confirmed whether the McDonald's drive-thru employee will be given reward money.

McDonald's applauded the crew members in a statement Tuesday to ABC news. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim's loved ones and all of those impacted by this horrific crime".

Authorities in Cleveland urged a nationwide debate on the issue of violence on social media and to find answers to the plague of gun crime rocking America.

"We can not resolve this underlying issue of violence, particularly gun violence if we do not function and operate and have the same compassion and commitment that we've shown here", said Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson.
