COALPORT, Pa. (WTAJ) — Charges have been filed for a shooting incident that occurred in Coalport in June, according to Clearfield County District Attorney Bill Shaw.

Cole Brown, 18 of Indiana, Pa., Charles Smith, 19, of Indiana, Pa., and Jasiah Williams, 18, of Indiana, Pa., were charged, along with six juveniles.

“These folks were largely out of county so it took a lot of legwork coordinating with other state police troopers to locate the folks, to talk to these folks, so hats off to the state police, they did a fine job,” Shaw said.

The three adults and four juveniles were charged with riot and disorderly conduct.

Two other juveniles were charged with riot, possession of a firearm by a minor, firearm not to be carried without a license, terroristic threats, propulsion of missiles onto roadway, recklessly endangering another person, and disorderly conduct.

The affidavit says that the eight individuals involved went to Coalport Borough to engage in a fight with a resident of Coalport. Two of the juveniles had ball bats used during the altercation.

Two other known juveniles had handguns that were discharged. Video taken from Coalport Alliance Church was used in the investigation.

Shaw said the investigation is ongoing and there will be more arrests made.

“The folks down there carrying on the nonsense need to take note,” Shaw said. “We know who you are now, you’re going to be arrested, so knock it off.”
