A patrol trooper was not able to stop in time and slid into Stephens' vehicle.

Steve Stephens was accused of shooting Robert Godwin Sr (74) on a sidewalk on Sunday before fleeing in a auto and uploading a video of the murder to Facebook.

In one video posted on Facebook, Stephens said that he gambled away everything and that he and his girlfriend had planned to marry but did not, without saying why. "And we have a lot of work and we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening".

Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, live-streamed the aftermath of the shooting, which shows an officer pointing his gun at her through the window.

Facebook said Stephens' account was suspended within 23 minutes of the murder video being reported, but admitted it needs to "do better".

"I could not do that if I did not know God, if I didn't know him as my God and my savior, I could not forgive that man", she said.
