Victim Irina Gibert, 53, fled to the Hessian Aldi branch around 1 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7, when she realized that her ex-boyfriend was following her.

But when she asked staff for help, the abandoned ex, 58, followed her to the supermarket in the town of Schwalmstadt-Treysa, home to around 8,500 people, about 60 miles northeast of Frankfurt.

An eyewitness told local media that she “ran into the supermarket and yelled loudly for help.”

The heroic Aldi manager stepped between the two as the man burst in.

But he was forced to resign after the shooter pulled out a rapid-fire pistol and shot Irina four times.

He then turned the gun on himself in front of horrified shoppers.

The manager, referred to only as Y in local media, is said to be undergoing psychiatric treatment.

Irina is said to have met her killer online and dated him for several months before ending the relationship last February.

The night before she was killed, she contacted emergency services to say her ex-boyfriend threatened her at her home, German newspaper Bild reports.

Three police cars were dispatched to her home, but officers reportedly dismissed the case, saying her ex was keeping a “low profile and quiet”.

Irina reportedly filed a complaint against her ex for assault, coercion and stalking just hours before her death.

Customers said the shots sounded like glass breaking in a supermarket and didn’t realize what was happening.

No one else was injured in the shooting.

A police spokesman said at the time: “According to consistent witness statements, a man first shot a woman in the market and then apparently took his own life immediately afterwards.

“According to initial investigations, there is currently no evidence of third-party involvement.”
