moments right now, because everybody's sensitized to the event. >> just hearing siren after siren, watching all the police cars going by and it was alarming how many sirens there were and just constant all night. >> reporter: most also telling us they will not allow this attack to stop them from returning to paris in the future. jacqueline, you mentioned this at the top of this newscast, one of the terrorists used a fake syrian passport to get here to paris and so now some people believe that the u.s. should not allow any syrian refugees in. nbc 10's lauren mayk is joining us now live from center city with more on the debate. lauren? >> reporter: good evening, jim. i did some research and found out at this point this year, six syrian refugees have made it here to philadelphia. 40 have gone to allentown, but now this clash of humanitarian and security concerns is raising questions about where immigrants across the country will go in
the future. the aftermath of anguish in paris is stirring an already controversial question in the u.s. should refugees from syria come here, and where? >> it's a moral outrage we haven't taken in more. >> reporter: executive director of the philadelphia arab-american development corporation, a social service agency for the arabic community. >> i have no fear, i don't think it's going to be any terrorist or security threat to our country. >> reporter: refugees are vetted in a process that according to the state department takes 18 months to two years. some refugees are already here. the states in blue have taken them in this year. pennsylvania, one of the biggest at 119. new jersey took in 75, in delaware none, though the governor supports asylum, but governors in some states are saying no to the refugees and immigration advocates here worry the fear could spread. >> i think that, you know, in this country, especially in the
last few months, we've seen a lot of anti-immigrant sentiment and that the horrible, horrible thing that happened in paris is going to feed into that. >> reporter: of course, this is no doubt becoming a political issue after word today from governor tom wolf's office that he would continue to allow syrian refugees to come into pennsylvania. i saw both press releases and tweets from politicians, both criticizing and celebrating that decision. live in center city, i'm lauren mayk, nbc 10 news. from paris to the u.s., people continue to honor the victims of the attacks today at the september 11th memorial in new york. dozens of people held french flags and flowers as leaders prayed for paris to recover from friday's deadly and devastating attacks. we have much more coverage of the terror in paris. nbc 10's jim rosenfield will rejoin us live in a few minutes, then don't miss nbc nightly news terror in paris with lester holt right after this broadcast at

open. >> reporter: to kassim and his father, labeling them as medical specimens doesn't making dumping small bodies in an alley right. >> those specimens still belong to someone. someone leaves something like that in their care, they should respect it. >> reporter: investigators are asking anyone with information to call them live at special victims, doug shimell, nbc 10 news. in bucks county, police say a gun saved an officer's life, but not in the way you might expect. earlier this month, police went to a motel room in bensalem looking for a parole violator. he was there but so were two murder suspects from north carolina. police say one of the suspects fired shots at an officer, but he couldn't return fire. one shot hit the officer's gun. the flashlight under the barrel of that gun stopped the bullet where it is now lodged. police say it's a miracle the officer wasn't hit. >> but it was at such close proximity to one another, we're
probably talking less than a couple inches away from one another. >> the man who police say fired the shot, lloyd wright, was wanted for murder. he killed himself. the other two suspects are behind bars. next on nbc 10 news at 6:00, a local mall called the grinch. new at 6:00, a change of heart for parents and kids wanting to see santa. rebuilding a boardwalk one step at a time. tonight we take you up close at the demolition work down at the jersey shore.
this is nbc 10 news. >> 15 victims of friday's deadly terror attacks in paris have yet to be identified. that information is coming from france's ambassador to the united states within the last hour. 129 people were killed in the coordinated attacks. u.s. secretary of state john kerry says president obama will travel to paris later this month for a planned u.n. climate conference. and within the last two hours, police launched a raid in another part of france. they thought a suspect was there, but it turns out he was not. and we'll go back to my co-anchor jim rosenfield live in paris in about ten minutes.
meanwhile, it is one of those popular boardwalks at the shore, but tonight part of it is closed, and that's because of a major construction project that officials say should resolve in a stronger and safer boardwalk. it ted greenberg shows us how the work is showing progress ahead of a spring deadline. >> reporter: splintered woods, nails exposed for a stretch of ocean city's well-traveled boardwalk, this is the end of the road, at least temporarily. >> we were really surprised when we came down. >> reporter: demolition crews are in the process of ripping out more than a block of the boards from plaza place south to eighth street. the worn concrete sub structure more than three-quarters of a century old will come down, too, and be replaced with timber pilings. >> necessary. >> yes, necessary, inconvenient, but it's progress, so we're happy about it.
>> reporter: this is the third phase of a multi-year project to rebuild the boardwalk from fifth to 12th streets. officials say the new sections are sturdier, they can handle more weight than the old ones, and the wooden decking is an inch thicker, making the boardwalk more resilient to storms. >> first i've ever seen that done, yeah, but i guess it had to be done. >> reporter: officials say the demolition is also helping to cut down the risks of future fires by exposing potentially corroded utility lines that have been concealed for decades. >> able to remove all of the potential hazards that we can't see from underneath. in some instances we're seeing stuff that is 50, 60, 70 years old and over time we know it wears down. >> reporter: it could take two to four more years before the entire project is completed, but city leaders expect to have this phase nailed down in time to have a brand new boardwalk ready for palm sunday weekend. ted greenberg, nbc 10 news.

down to 57 tomorrow, then 61 on wednesday, and then up again on thursday. some places could hit 70 degrees on thursday, but it's going to be a wet 70 degrees. these are the lows tonight. see temperatures going down into the 30s in many areas north and west, so will be a chillier start to the day. this is the area of rain that is moving in. a lot of moisture building up in the gulf of mexico. first thing, a cold front comes down from the north, comes down dry. no rain with this one tonight, but you're going to feel the cool change by tomorrow. then on wednesday we start to get a wind off the ocean, we get more clouds, but still relatively mild. then thursday, that's when we get hit by some of that heavy rain, especially in the middle of the day. most of it after the morning rush and ending before the afternoon rush. and then another chilly air mass comes in for the weekend,
especially on sunday. it's going to be pretty chilly for the next eagles game. even colder than what it's going to be tomorrow. 44 degrees in philadelphia tonight, 37 north and west. then tomorrow doesn't warm up a whole lot, mid to upper 50s, but that's about average for this time of the year. mostly sunny skies again, and, of course, no rain during the day tomorrow. wednesday probably dry, as well, but the clouds increase, temperatures up a little bit, then warm, windy, and wet on thursday. some periods of heavy rain, then windy and colder on friday. little colder than that saturday, and a lot colder on sunday for the next eagles game. some pretty chilly weather goes into early next week. tampa bay won't like that. i'm john clark, coming up, will sam bradford be ready for sunday? we'll hear from mark sanchez and why nick foles won't be starting for the rams anymore. that's next.
this is the xfinity sports desk brought to you by xfinity. your home for the most live sports. >> hey, i'm john clark from comcast sportsnet. chip kelly did not reveal houw bad sam bradford's shoulder is. sam bradford reportedly has a sprained shoulder and concussion, so he's under nfl concussion protocol. not sure he's going to play sunday. he got drilled by chris mccain right here, who beat dennis kelly. mark sanchez right there came in and threw an interception in the end zone. mark filled in for nick foles last season, so it is ten games with the eagles, he has 15 turnovers. does chip still have faith in mark sanchez?
>> i feel very confident in mark sanchez. >> you have to be ready to go every week. i don't know, you never want to see a teammate go down, that's never the circumstance in which you want to play, but, you know, when you do get a chance to play, you got to make the most of it. >> birds blew a 13-point lead in the first quarter yesterday, their worst in seven years. they had trouble running the ball and finding receivers. the birds' wideouts only caught nine passes for 76 yards yesterday. riley cooper has gone three straight games without a catch. jordan matthews really is the only receiver having a good season, but chip kelly does not think the talent at the wide receiver position is the problem. >> there's a lot of things we're doing and targeting our inside receivers and tight ends just because of matchups. we knew going into this game our tight ends and inside receivers were going to be huge components, so we're trying to get the ball to those guys.
we play. if we can throw for 300 plus yards by throwing to tight ends and backs, we'll continue to do that. if they take them away, we need to go to our outside receivers. >> how about this, this just in, former eagles quarterback nick foles benched in st. louis. rams coach jeff fisher is looking for more consistency on offense, so they are going with case keenum. the birds traded nick in a second round pick to the rams for sam bradford. has it worked out for either team? not sure. sixers hosting the mavericks tonight. robert covington should be back. sixers are the only winless team in the nba, 0-10. this will be their toughest test so far at the power forward position. sixers have lost 20 straight games going back to last year. i'm john clark, we're right back.
