New Jersey Democratic Governor Phil Murphy on Friday, 4/27, ordered the state flag of Mississippi replaced in a display at Liberty State Park because it contains a Confederate emblem. The 1,200 acre park in Jersey City overlooks Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. The park has a display that flies each state's flag in the spring. The state flag of Mississippi contains the Confederate battle emblem in the upper left corner. It is a red field with a blue X and 13 white stars. It has been on the flag since 1894. Mississippians voted to keep this flag in a statewide election in 2001. "The Confederate symbol displayed on the Mississippi state flag is reprehensible and does not reflect our values of inclusivity and equality," Murphy said in a statement. Mississippi Republican Gov. Phil Bryant said in a statement Friday: "I'm disappointed in Gov. Murphy's actions. As I have repeatedly said, the voters of Mississippi should decide what the state flag is or is not." NJ Democratic state Sen. Sandra Cunningham initially brought the issue to the governor.

Philadelphia Police opened fire on a man who was shooting on a South Philadelphia street on Thursday night, 4/27. This was the second time police responded to gunfire on that street last night. It started around 8:20 p.m. on the 2100 block of Taney Terrace. Officers responded to a report of gunshots. They did not find a shooter or any victims, but they did find nine shell casings from two different weapons. At around 10:15 p.m., officers still patrolling the area heard gunshots and saw a man outside the same location shooting a gun. When officers opened fire on the man he ran inside. Police were able to get the 53-year-old man out of the building and placed him in custody. The man had fired 13 times from a handgun. Police do not know yet if he was shooting at someone or something in particular. No one, including the suspect or officers, were hit by gunfire. Internal Affairs and the Officer Involved Shooting Investigation Unit are also involved since police used their weapons.

Authorities are looking for an art thief who took a piece right off the wall in a building in University City and walked out the front door. It happened on April 4th at 3400 Civic Center Boulevard. The man was caught on surveillance cameras inside the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine. The suspect wrapped the piece in blue plastic and walked right out. The piece is called "34 Years in the Making" and is worth $1,600. It is made of pieces of license plates from different states. The suspect is described as a white, middle aged man with facial hair. He was wearing glasses, a black baseball cap with white lettering on the front, a black coat, and blue Nike sneakers with white trim on the bottom. If have any information contact University of Pennsylvania Detective Unit at 215-898-4485.
