MERCER, Pa. (WKBN) – A former fire chief in Mercer County was sentenced Friday for shooting a man.
David Jones was sentenced to four to 12 years in the June 2021 shooting of Tyler Schadt, of Greenville. He pleaded guilty last month to a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Investigators say the shooting was the result of a love triangle between Jones, the victim and the victim’s wife.
Police say Schadt arrived at Jones’s Chesnut Street property and they had a fight. Shortly after, Jones took a firearm out of his vehicle and shot Schadt once in the neck.
Jones served as chief of the Jamestown Borough Fire Department.
