Three adults and six juveniles have been charged related to a shots-fired incident in Coalport that prompted Main Street to be shut down in June, authorities say. Clearfield County District Attorney William Shaw Jr. identified the adults as 18-year old Cole Brown, 19-year-old Charles Smith and 18-year-old Jasiah Williams, all of Indiana. Investigators say the trio were among eight people who went to Coalport Borough June 26 to fight a Coalport resident. The group came in contact with the resident they were looking for, along with another group of people, on Main Street a little after 9 p.m. According to investigators, two juveniles used baseball bats during the altercation and two other juveniles had handguns that they fired. Authorities say video captured from the Coalport Alliance Church assisted with the investigation. "I am very aware of the issues facing Coalport Borough and I am working very hard with the state police to investigate, identify, and prosecute those who are causing the problems," Shaw said. Shaw goes on to vow that more arrests will be coming out of Coalport. The three adults and two juveniles are facing charges related to rioting and disorderly conduct, while four of the juveniles face felony charges related to rioting, possession of a firearm by a minor and firearm not to be carried without a license, authorities said. Shaw said the three adults in the case were arraigned by Magisterial District Judge James Glass and have preliminary hearings set for Oct. 16. The six juveniles will appear in juvenile court.
