Schuylkill County Man Wasn’t Messing Around, Fires Warning Shot

Shot fired during argument with people outside his apartment.

A Schuylkill County man is facing a felony charge for allegedly firing a gun inside his apartment during an argument with people outside. He reportedly fired the gun to prove to the others that he wasn't messing around.

A Schuylkill County man says he wasn’t messing around when he fired a warning shot inside his own apartment last week.

According to State Police in Frackville, troopers were dispatched to 101 S. Kennedy Drive in McAdoo a little past 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 3. Police received reports of a gun being fired in an upstairs apartment at that address.

When police arrived in McAdoo, they encountered 23-year-old Jarett Evanco. Evanco reportedly told police he was arguing with a group of people outside his apartment.

Evanco allegedly told those with whom he was engaged in the argument that he “wasn’t messing around” and to prove that, he fired a warning shot from a gun inside his apartment.

Police say Evanco gave up his gun when they arrived. They also say Evanco had a small bit of weed on him at the time.

Evanco is being charged with a third-degree felony for firing a gun in an occupied building, and misdemeanor charges of terroristic threats, reckless endangerment, and marijuana possession.

Court records show Evanco was arraigned before District Judge Edward Tarantelli later in the morning on Aug. 3. Tarantelli set Evanco’s bail at $100,000, which he couldn’t post so he’s in Schuylkill County Prison.

Evanco is due back in court before Tarantelli on Aug. 16 for his Preliminary Hearing.
