State police at Schuylkill Haven are investigating a shooting incident at a Schuylkill County business.

Troopers said the incident occurred between 11 p.m. on July 28 and 12:30 a.m. July 29, at the Economy Gas station, located along SR61 in North Manheim Township.

Troopers said Jonathan Weicicoskie, 23, of Auburn, arrived in the area of the station with a .22-caliber long gun. He then began to shoot up two diesel pumps located on the south side of the lot firing from a wooded area behind the station. Troopers said he fired 19 rounds at the pumps before being stopped by a neighbor.

Weicicoskie was arraigned on charges including criminal mischief before District Judge Christine Hale, of Frackville, and released on bail.

Troopers said additional charges are pending following a further investigation into prior incidents at the same location.

Troopers said the station is owned by Joseph Amin Gergus, 43, of Orwigsburg.
