"He's been shot in the head," the caller replied. 

"Is he awake at all?" the operator asked.

"He's not unconscious," came the reply. "He's dead."

One caller's screams of, "Oh Lord have mercy! Oh my God!" are all that can be heard from the scene at the start of what has unfolded into a saga that's left a nation horrified.

Police say Steve Stephens gunned down Godwin while recording himself on video. He later posted the footage to Facebook.

Stephens shot himself to death in his white Ford Fusion Tuesday morning while being followed by cops in Erie, Pa., Pennsylvania State Police confirmed.

After the shooting of Godwin, Cleveland cops had issued an aggravated murder warrant for the arrest of Stephens, who allegedly walked up to Godwin Sunday and demanded the victim say his ex-girlfriend's name.
