EAST GOSHEN TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A Pennsylvania gunman who was upset that his ex-wife had been awarded their home in their divorce has been found dead after he shot at her and killed his own parents.

Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said early Thursday that 59-year-old Bruce Rogal was dead after a manhunt and a police chase.

Few details are available.

Hogan had said Wednesday that Rogal, of Glenmoore, received an order finalizing the divorce and “that appears to be what set him off.”

Hogan says Rogal first went to the house where his ex-wife was staying, shot at her and missed.

He then drove to a retirement center in East Goshen Township, killed his parents, both in their late 80s, and fled.
