The former chief of the Jamestown, Pennsylvania Volunteer Fire Department has been sentenced for shooting a Greenville man.

David  Earl Jones appeared before Mercer County Common Pleas Court Judge D. Nel McEwen on Friday and was handed a sentence of four to 12 years in the state correctional system, according to District Attorney Peter Acker.

Jones, 55, pleaded guilty in August to one first-degree felony count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily harm.

Jones had been scheduled to go on trial on charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault when he entered the plea.

State Police say Jones wounded 31-year-old Tyler Schadt on June 13, 2021.

The victim was shot in the neck during a domestic argument on the 200 block of Chestnut Street in Jamestown.

State Police Major Case investigators say Jones got a gun from his car and shot Schadt.

According to the fire department's website, Jones joined the department in 1984.
