String Of Paintball Gun Attacks; Independence Center Makeover; Crews Find Human Remains In Old City

Philadelphia Police are now investigating a string of paint ball gun attacks that have taken place in the city. Five people were all targeted and shot by a suspected male in a Dodge/Chrysler Caravan as they walked outside on Tuesday in Roxborough. All five of the incidents took place on the same day, just hours after each other. Two of the five victims were taken to the hospital to treat there injuries. Police believe the suspect to be a black male between the ages of 15-20, if anyone has any information the are asked to contact Philadelphia Police.

The Independence Visitor's Center is now getting a full makeover, without closing the exhibit. The center opened up in 2001 on Market and 6th Streets, the owners say that despite the two-year, $15,000,000 renovation, they are still welcoming guests in to explore. One of the main renovations in the center is the expanding of the gift shop, as well as relocating and putting in new bathrooms. The renovation will also include new digital touch screens that visitors can download information off of to their smartphones. The renovations are expected to be finished in around 2 years.

Construction crews excavating in Old City in Philadelphia have now found human remains, including coffins at the construction site. The crews are working on Arch Street between 2nd and 3rd Streets, and found human bones at the site just months ago. From what the crews have discovered it appears to be an 18th century cemetery, and anthropologists from around the area are now working to dig up, remove and study the remains further. The building once on that land was home to the First Baptist Church burial grounds in the 1700's, the bodies were supposed to be relocated to a nearby cemetery in the 1800's. Construction crews are hoping the forensic team can complete their task quickly so the crew can get their work done by the end of the weekend. The bones have been taken back to be examined, but will be reinterred at the Mt. Moriah Cemetery.
