Man goes to prison for shooting his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend in Abington

Montco Courthouse

NORRISTOWN – A Philadelphia man who shot and injured his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend in Abington Township ended up in jail for a domestic incident.

Kaream Bundy, 47, of 2300 West Hagert Street, was sentenced in Montgomery District Court to two and a half to six years in a state correctional facility after pleading guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with the October 7, 2023 shooting.

Judge Thomas C. Branca, who agreed to a plea deal in the case, ordered as a condition of sentencing that Bundy not have any contact with the victim.

The investigation began at approximately 3:19 a.m. on Oct. 7, when Abington police responded to a report of a shooting in the 1600 block of Washington Avenue in the township’s Crestmont neighborhood. Arriving officers found a man lying on a lawn suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the lower portions of both legs, according to the criminal complaint filed by Abington Detective Donald Lindenmuth.

The victim told police Bundy was responsible for the shooting and fled the area in a vehicle. Investigators obtained surveillance camera footage showing a Chevy Malibu fleeing the scene and concluded Bundy had rented it.

The investigation revealed that the victim had a romantic relationship with Bundy’s ex-girlfriend, who lived on Washington Avenue.

The victim told investigators that Bundy arrived at the Washington Avenue apartment and an argument broke out between the men.

“During the altercation, Kaream Bundy removed a firearm and pointed it at the victim’s chest. The victim believes Kaream Bundy fired three shots at him, two of which struck him in both legs,” Lindenmuth alleged.

According to investigators, Bundy later had a phone conversation with the victim in which he told him not to contact the police about the incident and said he was willing to pay the victim money if he did not file a report.

In the indictment, the authorities justified their decision by saying that a background check had shown that Bundy already had a criminal record and was therefore not allowed to own a firearm.

Other charges against Bundy were dropped as part of the agreement: simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, terroristic threats, carrying a firearm without a permit and intimidation of a witness.
