Man Shoots Himself in Back of Limousine

Posted on May 7, 2002 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

A Pennsylvania man killed himself in the back seat of a limousine early Saturday morning in Philadelphia.

Damond Gordon, of Pottstown, Pa., reportedly hired a limousine for a night on the town in Philadelphia.

After a night of bar-hopping, at aproximately 3:45 a.m., Gordon had his driver, Bruce Hoffman, stop at the apartment of his 27-year-old ex-girlfriend in the Castor Gardens section of Northeast Philadelphia.

Armed with a shotgun, police said Gordon kicked in the door and fired two shots at the woman and her male friend.

He missed and no one was injured. There were also three children in the home at the time, and they were unharmed.

Gordon then struggled with a man at the home and fled back to his limousine, according to police.

Police began following the limousine, finally pulling it over at Philmont and the Boulevard.

As they approached the car, police heard one gunshot. In the backseat they found Gordon dead with wounds to the left-side of his head. Police also found the remains of a case of beer that they believe Gordon had been drinking.
