KLINE TOWNSHIP -- Police arrested a man two days after a deadly shooting in Schuylkill County.

Eric Mumaw, 29, of Kline Township, was arrested Thursday night.

Investigators believe Mumaw shot David Gombert, 27, of Hazle Township, outside a home on James Street near McAdoo during an argument Tuesday morning.

State police said Mumaw punched Gombert in the face with brass knuckles and shot him several times. Investigators say Mumaw had been antagonizing the victim over their Facebook accounts and was angry over Gombert's relationship with Mumaw's ex-girlfriend.

Mumaw is charged with third-degree murder and related charges and locked up in Schuylkill County.
