INDEPENDENCE MALL - April 21, 2013 (WPVI) -- Authorities have closed the Independence Visitor Center at Independence Mall due to an emergency situation.
The center, located at 6th and Market streets in Philadelphia, was evacuated just after 12:00 p.m.
Around 9:00 a.m., there was a report to park rangers of a man dressed in camouflage at the Visitor Center.
Philadelphia and transit police assisted in the manhunt.
Approximately 45 minutes later, it appeared the search was scaled back, if not called off entirely.
Then at around 12:30 p.m., park rangers escorted a man outside the Visitor Center who was wearing a camouflage jacket.
Though the agents remained silent, the man spoke to Action News while being taken away in handcuffs.
