Stephen Clancy Hill who goes by the name Steve Driver jumped from on top of a cliff after days of run from the law.

A porn actor, who was suspected of fatally stabbing a co-star and wounding two others, plunged to his death on Saturday, June 5 after an eight-hour stand-off with police in West Hills, California. Stephen Clancy Hill, 34, held a sword to his chest as police crisis negotiators attempted to talk him down from a cliff top.

Hill dramatically dived off the cliff as members of the Los Angeles Police Department's elite SWAT team attempted to apprehend him as dusk approached. The X-rated actor was pronounced dead from his injuries at a nearby hospital.

Hill had been at large since he attacked employees at Ultima DVD Inc., a video distribution facility in Van Nuys, California, on Tuesday, June 1. Reports suggest Hill was upset with production company staff after he was informed that he was being fired.

On Friday, he was charged with one count of murder and five counts of attempted murder in connection with the attack. The actor performed in porn films under the name Steve Driver.
