Police Shot Back After Being Fired Upon
A 20-year-old man was critically injured after reportedly shooting a "remarkable amount of gunfire" at police late Sunday night during a gathering of hundreds in Ferguson, Missouri, to commemorate the one-year anniversary of black teen Mike Brown's killing by a white police officer. Police say the shooting came after rival groups -- who Ferguson officials said were "criminals, not protesters" -- began opening fire at each other near the center of what was the otherwise peaceful day of memory. There were also reports of some protesters hurling rocks and bottles at police, a journalist getting assaulted and robbed and two other protesters also shot, both in the chest by police.
Hillary Clinton To Announce Major College Initiative
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is expected to announced a $350 billion, 10-year plan to make college more affordable on Monday. The New College Compact would give states money to guarantee "no-loan" tuition at four-year public universities and community colleges. States that sign up a lot of low- and middle-income students would get more money along with schools that work to reduce living expenses. Clinton also plans to continue President Obama's free community college tuition plan and make sure that students will "never have to pay more than 10% of their income when repaying the loan."
Steve-O Busted In Sea World Stunt
Former "Jackass" star Steve-O (born Stephen Glover) was arrested on Sunday night when he climbed to the top of a 100-foot-tall construction crane in Hollywood and filmed a series of videos documenting his stunt while shooting off fireworks. Why was the 41-year-old stuntmaster up there with a blow-up Orca floatie? While cops initially thought it was a suicide attempt, it turns out Steve, wearing a "Blackfish" t-shirt, was just pulling off his latest stunt protesting against Sea World; he was charged with a traffic infraction last year when he defaced a highway sign in San Diego. Cops charged him with trespassing, setting off fireworks within city limits, conspiracy to commit a crime and filming for personal gain without a permit in Sunday's protest.

Quick Take: A major decision is expected this week in the "Slender Man" stabbing case involving two 13-year-old girls accused of stabbing a classmate to please the online horror character. Officials will decide if the pair will be kept in the adult court or move them to the juvenile system. Both girls face a charge of attempted first-degree homicide in adult court that could land them 65 years prison if they're convicted. If they're moved to juvie they could be held for five years and all the court records would be sealed.
