fired. we found 16 spent shell casings along 24th street and ridge avenue. they're large caliber. >> reporter: and police still aren't sure who the intended target was. they don't believe it's the 13-year-olds given their ages. they are interviewing witnesses as well as looking over some surveillance camera footage hoping that will give them some clues but at this point, the gunman -- the search for the gunman is ongoing and they don't have a motive in this case just yet. reporting live in spring garden, jeanette reyes, channel6 "action news." alicia. >> all right, jeanette, thank you. new this morning, a philadelphia man has been identified as the victim of a freak accident on the ski slopes. this happened at blue mountain ski resort in carbon county on sunday. 53-year-old gregory soladuv was found lying in the snow on a double black diamond trail. another skier came down and said he couldn't avoid hitting him. he died from blunt force trauma. hard liquor is banned from fraternity events at lehigh

injection site presents significant public safety concerns. shapiro goes on to say that changes in state and federal law would need to occur for these sites to operate legally. >> well, the super bowl stadium just got a fresh coat of paint. the eagles name and logo now proudly displaced at one end of u.s. bank stadium in minneapolis. this is the first phase of total field transformation. we already know the eagles are winning big on the field but they're also scoring big off the field as well. the eagles donated $10,000 yesterday to help provide new equipment and resources to chester high school football team. >> to keep up with our competition who may have, you know, more than what we have, it was just a blessing from the eagles to see the need and meet the need, truly a difference for the players. let it be motivation to them. >> pretty amazing. the superintendent has also pledged to match the eagles' donation to the chester football team.
