Man accused of shooting ex-girlfriend's mom found dead

Officials: Suspect shot himself in Chester County

SCHUYLKILL TWP., Pa. - The former Lehigh County man wanted for allegedly shooting his ex-girlfriend's mother has been found dead.

Gregory Feldman fatally shot himself in the parking lot of a Wawa in Schuylkill Township, Chester County, authorities said.

Feldman's suicide came hours after the Montgomery County district attorney offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the 30-year-old's capture.

Authorities had charged the Harleysville, Montgomery County, man with attempted murder for allegedly twice shooting 48-year-old Amy Hermann inside her home in Limerick Township on Friday.

The Montgomery County D.A. said Monday that Hermann is recovering and expected to survive.

Police were initially dispatched to the victim's home on Longmeadow Drive shortly after noon to investigate the report of a woman who had been shot in the chest. When an officer arrived, the victim was sitting on the front porch holding her chest and being tended to by her husband, according to court records.

Authorities said she was shot once in the neck and the chest.

Hermann told police that she had been on the phone with her daughter, when Feldman appeared at the front door asking to speak with the victim's daughter, his ex-girlfriend, according to records. Hermann told Feldman that he shouldn't be at the house, at which point he said he had "something" for his ex-girlfriend and pulled a handgun from his pants pocket.

After twice shooting the victim, Feldman allegedly tried to fire several more shots that misfired. Police said he then grabbed the victim's cell phone and dropped a backpack he had been carrying.

The victim's daughter told police that she later called her mother's cell phone, which Feldman answered.

"I wanted you to feel my pain," Feldman allegedly said.

Authorities said Feldman, a graduate of Emmaus High School in Lehigh County, did not have a concealed carry permit.

Along with attempted murder, Feldman had been facing two counts of aggravated assault, five counts of robbery and single counts of burglary, reckless endangerment and carrying a firearm without a license.
