Man who shot ex-girlfriend’s mom is found dead
A Lower Salford man wanted in connection with the Sept. 22 shooting of a Limerick Township woman was found dead in Schuylkill Township Monday night.
Gregory D. Feldman, 30, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan.
Feldman had allegedly told his ex-girlfriend, “I wanted you to feel my pain,” after he shot and wounded her mother at their Limerick home.
According to a Facebook post from Schuylkill Township Police, Feldman was discovered shortly after 11 p.m. when a Phoenixville Police officer stopped at Wawa, 120 Schuylkill Road, and was advised by workers of a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot. The officer recognized the vehicle as the one that was involved in a shooting in Limerick on Friday and called one of the on-duty Schuylkill officers to report it.
Officers from the Schuylkill Township Police Department responded and were joined bymembers of the Phoenixville Police and East Pikeland Township police departments. Schuylkill Township officers organized a tactical approach to the vehicle under the assumption that Feldman was armed. Police shouted commands to the driver but when they did
not get a response, the officers moved in on the vehicle, gained entry and were able to determine that the driver was indeed Gregory Feldman, who was also deceased, police said.
Schuylkill Township Police were assisted at the scene by the Limerick Township Police Department, the Chester County Detectives and the Chester County Coroner’s Office.
Earlier on Monday, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office had announced it was offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension of Feldman.
“The Montgomery County detectives as well as Limerick police are actively investigating and searching for him. We could use some tips and help from the public so we are offering a $1,000 reward for any tips that would lead to his apprehension,” Kate Delano, director of communications for the district attorney’s office, said on Monday.
“He is considered armed and dangerous and so if someone sees him they should call 911,” Delano added.
Delano said detectives are “following up on tips.”
“Thankfully, the public has responded and has shared our social media posts, so his photo is out there as being wanted. Hopefully that will result in a quick resolution to this and he will be apprehended,” Delano said.
Authorities said Feldman was last seen driving a black, 2016 Mazda 6 sedan with license plate KFC 4705.
An arrest warrant was issued for Feldman on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, recklessly endangering another person and firearms not to be carried without a license in connection with the alleged shooting.
The investigation began at 12:18 p.m. Sept. 22 when Limerick police responded to the first block of Long Meadow Road for a report of a “female shot in the chest,” according to a criminal complaint. The first officers at the scene found a 48-year-old woman sitting on her porch, holding her chest, and being assisted by her husband.
“The victim was able to speak to the officers and when asked who had shot her, said, ‘Feldman, my daughter’s ex-boyfriend,’” Limerick Detective Ernie Morris wrote in the arrest affidavit.
Witnesses reported Feldman left the scene in a black 2016 Mazda 6 sedan, license plate KFC 4605. The victim, identified in court papers as Amy Hermann was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital near Allentown, where she was treated for two gunshot wounds, one to the chest and one to the neck, according to the criminal complaint.
Hermann later told detectives she was inside her home speaking with her daughter when the front doorbell rang and when she answered she found Feldman standing on her doorstep. Feldman asked the victim how her daughter was doing and Hermann informed Feldman he should not be at the home, according to court papers.
Feldman allegedly then stated he had “something” for his ex-girlfriend, “at which point he reached into his front pants pocket and pulled out a long-barreled handgun,” Morris wrote in the criminal complaint.
Hermann told detectives that Feldman shot her twice, followed by several additional attempted shots that apparently misfired, according to the ar- rest affidavit.
“After firing the shot, Feldman took a step into the house, dropped the backpack he was carrying and then took the victim’s cellphone,” Morris alleged.
Court papers indicate that the current boyfriend of Hermann’s daughter later called the victim’s stolen cellphone and Feldman answered the phone and demanded to speak to his ex-girlfriend, identified as Rebecca Hermann.
“When she got on the line and spoke with Feldman, he told her, ‘I wanted you to feel my pain,’” according to the criminal complaint.
A records check determined that Feldman does not possess a license to carry a concealed weapon.
Amy Hermann is expected to recover from her gunshot wounds, according to authorities.
