ANOTHER VIOLENT NIGHT IN MISSOURI FOLLOWING SATURDAY'S SHOOTING DEATH OF AN UNARMED BLACK TEENAGER BY POLICE.

FERGUSON POLICE CHIEF THOMAS JACKSON SAYS SHOTS WERE HEARD IN THE AREA AND TEAR GAS WAS USED TO DISPERSE THE CROWD.

SEVERAL ARRESTS WERE MADE, BUT WE HAVE NOT SEEN THE WIDESPREAD LOOTING THAT SHOOK THE COMMUNITY 24 HOURS EARLIER.

MICHAEL BROWN'S PARENTS REJECTED SUGGESTIONS BY POLICE THE TEENAGER WENT AFTER THE OFFICER'S GUN BEFORE BEING FATALLY SHOT.

"Just because my son is a 6'4" black male walking down a city street does not mean he fit the profile for anything other than just walking down that street, that's all he was doing."

"It's hard. Not seeing him, not talking to him on the phone, him cracking jokes, just playing around being him, you know?"

FEDERAL CIVIL RIGHTS INVESTIGATORS AND THE F-B-I HAVE OPENED INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE SHOOTING.

This is a terrible tragedy. Nobody wanted this to happen but what we want to do is we want to heal, we want to build trust with the community and part of that is to have a transparent, open investigation,

32 PEOPLE WERE ARRESTED MONDAY IN CONNECTION WITH SUNDAY NIGHT'S VIOLENCE.

THEY FACE CHARGES OF THEFT, ASSAULT AND BURGLARY.

--SUGGESTED ANCHOR QUESTIONS--

Where does the investigation stand?

ROBIN WILLIAMS SUICIDE-PLASMA


THIS MORNING THE UNEXPECTED LOSS OF ONE OF HOLLYWOOD'S MOST BELOVED FUNNYMEN STUNS FROM COAST TO COAST.

ROBIN WILLIAMS DIED AT HIS CALIFORNIA HOME MONDAY, AND SINCE THEN, THERE'S BEEN AN OUTPOURING OF GRIEF FROM FELLOW STARS AND FROM MOVIE FANS.

REPORTER KARIN CAIFA LOOKS AT HOW THE OSCAR WINNER IS BEING REMEMBERED THIS MORNING. Return to index of stories...


ROBIN WILLIAMS SUICIDE-PKG


AN OUTPOURING OF SADNESS FOR A MAN WHO BROUGHT SO MUCH LAUGHTER TO SO MANY.

It's shocking, it's sad.

HOLLYWOOD WAS LEFT STUNNED MONDAY, AFTER ACTOR AND COMEDIAN ROBIN WILLIAMS WAS FOUND DEAD IN HIS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA HOME. HE WAS 63.

He's gone way too soon, he was very talented and we're all going to miss him.

He was also a friend and I admired him, and he's a legend. He was unbelievable.

TRIBUTES ALSO CAME FROM FELLOW COMEDIANS --

There's certain guys out there that have just transcended all genres, all ages -- they just kind of break through. And Robin was one of those guys.

AND FROM FANS.

Mrs. Doubtfire, of course. Like literally, the second thought that came to mind, was my childhood.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS SAID THE DEATH APPEARED TO BE A SUICIDE, BUT AN AUTOPSY IS SCHEDULED FOR LATER TODAY.

THE ACTOR'S PUBLICIST SAID HE HAD BEEN BATTLING SEVERE DEPRESSION RECENTLY. THE ENTERTAINMENT COMMUNITY, WAS RELATIVELY UNAWARE.

I think in general people are really shocked, and traumatized by the news. It's completely and utterly unexpected.

WILLIAMS DID LEAVE BEHIND SOME UNRELEASED FILM WORK, INCLUDING HIS THIRD APPEARANCE AS TEDDY ROOSEVELT IN NEXT INSTALLMENT OF THE "NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM" SERIES. THE MOVIE IS SET TO HIT THEATRES IN DECEMBER.

BUT FOR NOW, HOLLYWOOD MOURNS YET ANOTHER STAR, GONE TOO SOON.

I'M KARIN CAIFA REPORTING. Return to index of stories...


ROBIN WILLIAMS SUICIDE-PLASMA-CG


SO MANY PEOPLE WERE INSPIRED BY ROBIN WILLIAMS.

WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO SHARE YOUR TRIBUTES, MEMORIES AND STORIES ON OUR NBC-2 FACEBOOK PAGE.

WHAT'S TRENDING 2DAY-SS-SOTVO


TIME NOW TO SEE WHAT'S TRENDING TODAY --- AND IF YOU SAW THE TOP OF OUR SHOW ---- YOU KNOW THE REACTION TO ROBIN WILLIAMS DEATH IS INCREDIBLE THIS MORNING.

As an individual, I think he had a lot of heart and a lot of compassion. He did a lot of things for a lot of people- publicly and privately. He transcended his supposed fear of expertise, which was like a benchmark as a comedian. And he crossed over into other areas and excelled at everything. He's gone way too soon

"It's sad to me that someone who could bring so much laughter and pleasure to others could not do it for himself. He was a tortured soul, I think."

ACTOR ROBIN WILLIAMS DIED MONDAY IN AN APPARENT SUICIDE AT HIS SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA HOME. HE WAS 63. Return to index of stories...
