Daughter's ex-boyfriend sought in shooting of Limerick woman

An arrest warrant has been issued for a 30-year-old Harleysville man in connection with the shooting Friday of a 48-year-old Limerick woman moments after she answered her front door.

The warrant for Gregory Feldman, who the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office in a tweet said was “considered armed and dangerous,” accuses him of twice shooting the victim, Amy Hermann, 48, after opening the front door of her home on Long Meadow Road. When police arrived, she was sitting on her front porch holding her chest, being attended to by her husband, Mark.

Limerick police said the victim identified Feldman as her shooter and said he was her daughter’s ex-boyfriend. She also said he tried to shoot her several times after that but the gun misfired. She was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital with wounds to her chest and neck, police said.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, Feldman told Hermann he came by to inquire about how her daughter Rebecca was doing. When she told him that “he shouldn’t be there,” Feldman said he “had something” for the daughter, pulled out a handgun and shot.

After shooting Hermann, police said, Feldman tried to step into the house but was unsuccessful, so he left, leaving behind a backpack he was carrying but taking Hermann’s cellphone.

Police said Rebecca Hermann told them that her current boyfriend called her mother’s cellphone after the shooting and that Feldman answered and demanded to speak to Rebecca. When she got on the phone, Feldman reportedly said: “I wanted you to feel my pain.”

Feldman, who is not licensed to carry a concealed firearm, was charged with aggravated assault, attempted murder and other offenses.
