Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said 30-year-old Gregory Feldman took his own life Monday night in the parking lot of the Wawa grocery store in Schuylkill Twp. just hours after authorities posted a reward for his capture.
Hours earlier, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office announced a $1,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension of Feldman.
Police say Feldman shot his ex's 48-year-old mother in the chest and neck after she turned him away from their home on Long Meadow Drive in Limerick on Friday.
The ex-girlfriend told a detective that Feldman later spoke to her on the phone, telling her, "I wanted you to feel my pain."
The victim is still recovering, but she is expected to survive.
