    The city of New Orleans will remove four statues of Confederate-era events and figures in an effort to divorce itself from symbols that some see as problematic. The first statue, the Liberty Place Monument, was taken down early Monday morning.

    The victims were found Saturday afternoon inside a house in Citronelle — a city about 30 miles northwest of Mobile. Police said a four-month-old baby was found alive at the scene. 

    Police told NBC News multiple instruments were used, including a firearm and possibly an ax.
