The tweet indicates the shots were fired at about 3:45 p.m. in Pottsville. That’s right at the height of the early part of the Yuengling 190th anniversary celebration on Saturday. Thousands of people were in town who normally aren’t when the shots rang out.

The call came in from near Third and Harrison streets in Pottsville, about a block behind the courthouse or right near Schuylkill County Prison.
