A Pennsylvania man who allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend’s mother was found dead from an apparent suicide Monday night.
Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said the dead body of Gregory Feldman, 30, was found in the parking lot of a Wawa convenience store in Schuylkill Township, according to ABC 6 in Philadelphia.
Just hours earlier, a $1,000 reward had been announced for information leading to his capture for the shooting of 48-year-old Amy Hermann last Friday, September 22.
"I wanted you to feel my pain," Feldman told his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Hermann after the shooting. Earlier in the day, he had showed up at the Hermann’s home in Limerick, Pennsylvania. When her mother answered the door, she told Feldman he shouldn’t be there. Feldman then said, “I have something for Becca,” and pulled a long-barreled gun out his pants pocket, according to court documents obtained by the website Philly.com.
Feldman pulled off several rounds, two of which hit Amy Hermann in the chest and neck. Before leaving the scene, Feldman stole Hermann’s cell phone as well. Rebecca Hermann’s current boyfriend later called her mother’s cellphone. When Feldman answered, he demanded to speak to his ex, then confessed the bilious motive for his bloody revenge.
Amy Hermann was taken to a nearby hospital and is still recovering from her wounds, but is expected to survive.
Earlier this month, Feldman had been arrested on a DUI charge in Montgomery Township. He also had two drug charges from 2015, one of which he pleaded guilty to, resulting in a year’s probation.
According to a post on the Schuylkill Township Police Department’s Facebook page, workers at the Wawa noticed a suspicious car in their parking lot Monday night. At around 11 pm, a Phoenixville Police officer responded and recognized the vehicle as Feldman’s. Thinking Feldman was still alive, armed and dangerous, officers from three different towns converged on the scene and “organized a tactical approach to the vehicle.” After moving in on the vehicle and gaining entry, they discovered Feldman dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
