If You Hear Gunshots in Downtown Cleveland Tonight It Will (Probably) Just Be a Live Police Exercise at Progressive Field
Scene archives

In preparation for MLB All Star Week's arrival in the city, Cleveland police and fire will be conducting a live exercise tonight from about 5:30 to 9 p.m. at Progressive Field. It will include live ammunition and live rounds in a controlled environment.

So, should you hear gunshots around downtown Cleveland, that will most likely be the source, so don't bombard 911 with calls. Of course, if you're certain that it's not the source, do dial up the authorities.
