Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf commended the police for the pursuit and said no one else in the state was hurt.
Stephens, 37, remained on the run for nearly 48 hours after shooting 78-year-old Robert Goodwin in the head in Cleveland and posting the footage on Facebook.
His death came just hours after police announced that they had received about 400 tips nationwide for the case, but did not have a clear idea of where he might be.
