(Harrisburg) -- The man who shot and killed a former girlfriend and then turned the weapon on himself earlier this week in Mount Gretna, Lebanon County, has died.

Dauphin County Coroner Graham Hetrick says 47-year-old Patrick Derr died yesterday at Penn State Hershey Medical Center of a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.

Derr shot 46-year-old Stacey Pennington of South Lebanon Township just before 11:30 Monday morning outside the popular Jigger Shop ice cream parlor in Mount Gretna.

Pennington owned the Mount Gretna Emporium and Gift Shop next to the ice cream parlor and had an active protection from abuse order against Derr.
