Green said on a December 2015 casino trip they took together, Stephens emptied his banking account, waited overnight until more money became available and went back inside, only to lose more cash.

Maggie Green, who expressed her condolences to the Godwin family, said Wednesday that she believes Stephens' breakup with Lane triggered the killing.

Thomas Ducharme said they delayed Stephens slightly by telling him the fries were not quite ready.

Following a brief police pursuit, Stephens died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. "We will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening".

"He gave her - I don't even remember what the denomination of the bill was - but didn't wait didn't say anything didn't wait for the change, so her immediate reaction was to look out the window to see what was going on, he said".

After his suicide, Pennsylvania State Police recovered a.45-caliber Glock handgun, believed to be the murder weapon, in Stephens' auto, and, according to a law enforcement source, a.380-caliber pistol at the home of his ex-girlfriend, Joy Lane.

Stephens, about 2 p.m. Sunday, pulled up next to Robert Godwin Sr., who was collecting cans while walking on East 93rd Street in the city's Glenville neighborhood.

Stephens' mother told CNN she called him after learning about the video, and he had told her he was shooting people because he was "mad with his girlfriend".

However, they have a particularly hard run in, with Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United all still to play. Palace have won five of their last six league games, having previously taken 26 matches to record as many victories.

The Godwin sisters told Lane that none of this was her fault and that they don't hold any animosity for her.

"And this is a prime example, this is something that should not have been shared around the world".

In the video, which has since been removed from Facebook, Stephens mentions Lane in the moments before the shooting, saying to the victim, "She's the reason why all this about to happen to you".

Police were starting to get out of their cruisers when "I heard a shot. And as long as there's life in him, there is hope for him too".

"I feel bad", Lane told the sisters, according to WJW.

After the Godwin killing, a nationwide manhunt ensued, ending in Stephens' death not far from where he was spotted at a McDonald's in Pennsylvania.

"Each one of us forgives the killer".

He said his gambling had caused him to "lose everything" and left him "out of options".
