The man who was killed in a standoff at a Turnpike during a confrontation with State Police had stalked a woman and fatally shot her just days earlier, according to authorities.
Kyle Foggy, 29, of Cherry Hill was shot “in the presence of law enforcement” at the Clara Barton service area on the southbound side of the New Jersey Turnpike between Exit 2 and Exit 1 at approximately 1:45 p.m, on Feb. 28. according to the Attorney General Integrity Bureau. He died later that night at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware.
The Office of the Attorney General on March 9 said Foggy died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No details were disclosed about what led Foggy to shoot himself.
Camden County Prosecutor Grace MacAulay said Foggy was charged with murder in the Feb. 25 shooting of Michelle Cruz, 28, of Lawnside on Mouldy Road in Lawnside. She did not disclose if Foggy was taken into custody at any point between the shooting on Saturday and the incident on the Turnpike.
Stalking his eventual victim
According to the court documents obtained by NJ.com, Foggy was stalking Cruz in the hours before the 4 a.m. shooting. Police chased him away from the front of her apartment building five times before he fired the fatal shots. One of those officers reportedly found Cruz on the ground with a gunshot to the head.
Police later found Foggy's cell phone with texts and video that showed domestic violence incidents with Cruz, according to the report, but the nature of their relationship was not disclosed.
The Delaware-based news website 1st State Update reported the incident involved a homicide suspect who threatened to kill himself when he was stopped by marshals.
Video of the scene showed what appeared to be members of a SWAT team in the parking lot.
