A woman huddling in a home basement near where Pottstown police are engaged in a standoff with an apartment dweller has told her husband she heard “a ton of gunshots” this afternoon.

“My wife just heard a ton of gunshots,” John Shoen, pool manager of the Mary Robin Brigham Aquatic Center in Berwyn, e-mailed at 3:24 p.m. today. “She is on Logan Street in the basement of my sister’s house with my son. She called me on her cellphone crying.”

Shoen said his wife and son were in the basement at 713 Logan, maybe five or 10 houses from the Logan Square Apartments where the standoff was occurring.
