seasons," and "the new york post," "the ultimate giant." we'll have much more on frank's life later in the show. >> such a wonderful man and she was so devoted and true. we'll talk to her later this morning. we'll start, though, with our top story, a violent night in ferguson, missouri. police say at least one person was shot as demonstrations remembering michael brown turned ugly one year to the day he was fatally shot by police. nbc's ron allen has all the overnight developments from ferguson this morning. ron, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah. absolutely a stunning display of violence. police just called it a remarkable barrage of gunfire, dozens of rounds fired not far from where police and protesters confronted each other, leaving one man hospitalized in critical and unstable condition, and one year later leaving many here wondering if ferguson is on the brink of more unrest. an evening of peaceful protests demanding justice one year after the death of michael brown seemed to be winding down when, without warning, gunfire in the
darkness. [ shots ] the crowd, the police, everyone running for cover. >> move it, move it, move it! anybody hit? >> reporter: freelance photographer bradley raiford was in the middle of it all. >> i heard a lot of gunfire, a lot of gunfire. >> reporter: five shots, ten shots? >> more than that, coming from all different directions. >> reporter: police say it was an exchange of gunfire between two groups apparently firing at each other and then targeting police as they closed in. according to authorities, businesses along one of ferguson's busiest streets had been looted and officers had been hit with bricks and bottles, vehicles hit in the cross fire. >> there is a small group of people out there that are intent on making sure that we don't have peace that prevails. i don't know how else to say that, but that's just the bottom line. >> reporter: police say at least four detectives chased the suspect, who they say opened fire. these graphic images show the
aftermath. >> this was pretty terrifying. >> very terrifying. i've never seen a body close to death before. >> reporter: it had been a peaceful weekend. thousands marching through the city led by michael brown's family and supporters still grieving their loss. >> he walked to the store and never came back. i don't know how you explain it. >> reporter: also overnight, two wounded in a drive-by shooting not far from here. in the aftermath of all the violence, a very tense day here in ferguson, police making sure, making clear that they blame a small group of criminals and not peaceful protesters for all this. as ferguson tries to move forward, the hunt for suspects continues. willie, savannah? >> in ferguson, ron allen. thank you. turning now to our other breaking story this morning. this one is out of istanbul, turkey, where the american consulate came under attack overnight. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel is on the ground in istanbul. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
there were actually two attacks in istanbul this morning, one on a turkish police station. one police officer was killed. and the other, that shooting near the u.s. consulate. nbc news obtained this video taken by a man who said he filmed it from an apartment near the u.s. consulate. it appears to show police confronting a woman they say had just approached the consulate with a gun. she's cornered at a crawl space. a police officer opened fire but misses. he shouts for the woman to surrender. she appears confused and angry. the attack, residents say, started at around 7:00 a.m. the consulate in a well fortified compound was not breached. witnesses say the woman fired at least two shots outside. "i woke up hearing police yelling, stop, stop, down on the ground, and then i saw a woman running," he said. the entire area around the consulate has now been sealed off. witnesses tell us after the
woman dropped a bag, took out a pistol and was confronted by police, she started running. she came down that street, went to the end of the block and then hid in a building. that's where the standoff developed. at one point, the woman seems to hold up her hands in surrender, then throws something at police. police keep firing and she's wounded. later arrested. turkish police have just identified the woman as 51 years old from a known far left organization. there is also concerns here about isis attacks. turkey has been recently intensifying its attacks against isis with increased u.s. cooperation. the u.s. has just brought in six more f-16s to assist in that operation against isis. so, today it was a far left group that attacked. the fear is that isis could attack as well. >> some incredible video there. richard engel in istanbul. thanks, richard. we move to politics now. a new week but a similar scene. donald trump still on top.
he's leading his fellow republican presidential candidates by double digits in our latest poll, but the controversy surrounding his comments about fox news's megyn kelly won't go away, and trump is not backing down. we will talk live to mr. trump in just a moment, but first, nbc's kristen welker has the latest on all of it. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. the latest nbc news survey monkey poll shows trump is still ten points ahead of his nearest competitor, but can he move beyond this latest controversy? meanwhile, the challenge for the rest of the republican candidates, breaking through all of the trump noise. >> when i'm attacked, i fight back. >> reporter: donald trump remains defiant, refusing to apologize for shocking remarks he made about fox news anchor megyn kelly. >> no, i apologize when i'm wrong, but i haven't been wrong. i said nothing wrong. >> reporter: the controversial comments at the center of the firestorm were made friday night when trump seemed to suggest kelly was hormonal when she asked him tough questions during last week's first gop debate.
>> you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. but she was, in my opinion, she was off base. >> reporter: trump says he was only referring to kelly's nose. still, the comments touched a nerve throughout the republican party. this weekend, conservative activist erick erickson disinvited trump from his redstate gathering in atlanta. >> i don't want my daughter in the room with donald trump tomorrow night. >> reporter: and most of trump's republican rivals pounced. >> i think it's cowardly to share those kinds of demeaning, insulting comments. >> they were completely inappropriate and offensive comments, period. >> reporter: it's not clear yet whether the flap will impact trump's front-runner status, but it comes amidst some infighting in his campaign. trump says he fired his longtime business ally and campaign adviser, roger stone. stone disputes that, saying he quit. meanwhile, for trump's opponents, the goal is just getting their own messages out.
>> we're going to keep the focus of this campaign on the problems, the challenges facing the american people. >> i'm going to fight hard, i'm going to fight with heart. >> reporter: and breaking overnight, buzzfeed reported that trump has been paying a conservative website, breitbart news for favorable coverage. they deny that, telling buzzfeed, "we have no financial relationship with donald trump. the insinuation that we do or did is a lie." trump's campaign did not comment. back to you. >> thank you so much. donald trump joins us on the phone right now. mr. trump, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i know you've been asked a lot about this, so let me see if i can attack it from a different tact. you said exactly that megyn kelly had blood coming out of her wherever. now, some people thought that was a clear reference to her menstrual cycle. you say you meant it was coming out of her nose or maybe her ear. >> correct. >> my question to you is why should people give you the
benefit of the doubt in this particular controversy, given your very long history of pretty personal and pretty vitriolic and sometimes very crass insults? >> well, this wasn't meant to be much of an insult. she asked me a question. it was an inappropriate, ridiculous question. even the other candidates came up to me and said that was absolutely out of line. she asked me a question that was nasty and i gave her a pretty tough answer. i mentioned something at that particular question, that was the rosie o'donnell mention, and the room broke out. it was the largest applause of the day, by far. and she got very angry during this question because of that, because she couldn't even finish the rest of the question because the crowd went wild. and in discussing it later, i said blood was -- she was so angry that blood was coming out of her eyes, blood was coming out of her -- and then i didn't even finish the answer because i wanted to get on to the next point. but i was referring to, or if i finished it, i was going to say, ears or nose, because that's
just a common statement. blood is pouring out of your ears. it's a very common statement. and then the next day, this, you know, total lightweight from, erick erickson, i think his name is, a total lightweight, somebody that's lost so many races, he's a disgrace, frankly to conservatives, he figures he'll get some publicity, he'll disinvite me, which saved me a lot of fuel money. but what happened out of redstate, which isn't even a big deal, but what happened there is they had virtual riots. the people went nuts when they heard i wasn't coming. >> let me just ask you just to clarify. if someone made such a comment about a female journalist, suggesting that they were on their menstrual cycle -- >> that would be inappropriate. >> it would be classless and juvenile and out of line, right? >> that would be inappropriate, but i didn't do that. if i did that -- first of all, look, i happen to be a smart person. i went to the best schools, i was a great student, i built a great empire, i did the "art of the deal," i did "the apprentice" -- >> what does it say to you that people think you did that very
thing, that your reputation is such that they thought that? >> it's all fueled by the press, by you and the press. it's ridiculous. who would say such a thing? if i would have said that, it would have been inappropriate. the interesting thing is, i really said nothing, because i stopped, because i wanted to get on to jobs or whatever the next suggest was. >> let me ask you one last thing on this. you reposted to your followers on twitter a message from someone else, but this message called megyn kelly a bimbo. so, in effect, you publicized that message to 3.6 million people. do you think she's a bimbo? do you agree with that? is that why you reposted it? >> i thought the kind of questions she was asking me were inappropriate and they were the kind of questions that somebody -- you could make the case -- look, look, i was not asked about jobs. i was not asked about, you know, nuclear. i was not asked about all of the problems -- i wasn't asked about things that other people were asked about. and despite that, almost every poll has me having won the debate. they said i won the debate, but i was given the worst questions
of anybody! >> it's a fair point, and you have absolutely been criticized for being more bluster than detailed. if you look at your website, and i did so this morning, there aren't any details, specifics or policy papers that you might see on another candidate's website. one expert i read said you're like everyone's uncle george at thanksgiving, saying you have all the solutions to the problems but no specifics. would you acknowledge you need to -- >> i'll tell you what, savannah, they had 24 million people watching. it was the largest in the history of fox and the largest in all of cable television history. 24 million people. if i wasn't on the show, they would have had 2 million people watching and they probably wouldn't have had that many. so you know, the other candidates are very lucky, because at least people are watching what they're saying as opposed to nobody caring. >> all right. donald trump, we always appreciate you calling in. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. >> and as kristen welker pointed out, the new nbc news/survey monkey survey has him up 20 points even after this firestorm. >> got a bump out of the debate.
natalie is here now with the latest on some very scary incidents at a major u.s. airport. >> yes, it's happened again. the pilots of four commercial airlines reported seeing a drone during final approach at newark airport on sunday. the latest in a long list of similar incidents at new york area airports. nbc's kristen dahlgren is in newark for us. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. yeah, there is growing concern. this is the fourth airport drone incident in the new york area just this month. now, according to the faa, four commercial flights on approach here to newark on sunday reported seeing that drone flying between 2,000 and 3,000 feet. none of the flights had to take evasive action, all landed safely, but it made for some very tense moments. >> 1259, newark tower winds near 509, clear to land, use caution. drone reported six miles final 200 off to the right side. do have an occasional primary target in that general vicinity. >> okay.
we'll watch for a drone, 1259. >> reporter: now, personal drones are not allowed to fly above 400 feet and not within five miles of the airport. the faa is still investigating. violating those rules, natalie, results in a $25,000 fine and criminal charges. back to you. >> all right, kristen dahlgren at newark airport for us. thank you. the man accused of killing eight people in texas this weekend, including six children, will make his first appearance in court today. according to deputies, 49-year-old david conley admitted breaking into a harris county home and shooting a couple and six children ranging in age from 13 to 6. police believe conley was previously in a contentious relationship with the adult female victim. the families of two florida boys who disappeared at sea say they have called off their search. the coast guard spent a full week looking for perry cohen and austin stephanos after they didn't return from a fishing trip on july 24th. the families then launched a private search with volunteers searching the waters off georgia
and the carolinas. in a statement, the family said, "today our hope becomes our prayer that one day perry and austin will be returned to us." newly released video shows the dramatic moments when a house exploded earlier this month in lansing, michigan. officials say the blast was caused by a gas explosion following a hit-and-run accident that sent a vehicle into the home's gas meter. thankfully, everyone got out of the house okay. police are still looking, though, for the vehicle that was involved in that crash. and a horrifying ordeal caught on camera when a storm buffeted a parasailing boat. it eventually snapped, leaving a young british man and his teenage sister at the mercy of the wind. the two eventually landed in a field of bushes and escaped with just scratches and bruises. that is remarkable. well, the dog days of summer are here, so a 6-month-old lab named maddie was looking for a way to stay cool.
there was no water in the pool, so she took matters into her own hands, or paws, dragging the hose, as you see there, to the plastic kiddie pool. >> wow. >> even managing to fill it up. you know what? they are so smart, they figure everything out. they know what they need to do, right? >> this is why i love dogs. >> adorable. >> he likes the hose. i think he's having a lot of fun with it. >> smart dog. >> test him making a margarita. >> all right, natalie, thank you so much. dylan in for al. good morning to you. >> good morning, guys. the weather was absolutely ideal in the northeast this weekend. in the south, though, it's been extremely hot, and we are going to begin to see some storms moving into the ohio river valley later this afternoon. we do have some heavy rain this morning and flash flood watches in effect through eastern missouri, so watch out for heavier rains this morning. scattered storms this afternoon, hail and damaging wind gusts possible, but keep an eye on the sky. that's a look at your weather across the country. your local forecast is coming up in 30 seconds.

she'll die. it's encompassing all the emotions at one time. >> you look like a teenager. very young. but you are no longer a teenager. >> i was 15 eight years ago. >> does anyone need a pen? >> someone told me they saw the movie and the way i walked was like a baby deer learning to walk for the first time. >> i don't know what to make of that. that's a compliment. >> youthful. >> i think when you're a teenager you feel awkward, your body is changing. everything is new. >> you never experienced that. >> no, no. >> it's all foreign. what's this you speak of, this awkwardness. >> we talked about bel being a rising star. let's embarrass her. what kind of actress is she? >> absolutely transparent. every moment, any scene. it was one of the few times i hung out on set to watch other people doing their work. because it was so engaging, so
engrossing. at every turn whether it was, you know, as you say the vulnerability or a sense of false bravado or this lost human being. yet so open, trying to find something to anchor herself to. something to anchor herself to. >> it was really a sure! i offer multi-car, safe driver, and so many other discounts that people think i'm a big deal. and boy, are they right. ladies, i can share hundreds in savings with all of you! just visit progressive.com today. but right now, it's choosing time. ooh! we have a winner. all: what?

years ago. investigators believe the two were among a group of teens, some as young as 13, who were on a crime spree. the other boys are charged in juvenile court. and school starts as soon as this week in the bay area. and with an unusually high shortage of teachers. the mercury news reports last week still about a dozen teachers short of full staff. one of the problems is a shrinking pool of candidates and more openings across the state. the mercury news reports substitute teachers in some districts are in extremely short supply. meengt kari hall after the break.

they wanted something glamorous, sophisticated. sexy. >> i have a confession. >> yes. >> that looks exactly like my bedroom. exactly. >> that surprises me. you have a big personality. this room has zero personality. usually rooms reflect your personality. >> i will steal whatever after picture you've got. >> here comes the after. >> oh! >> this is easy. we brought in color on the walls. we brought in window coverings. we brought in colorful art behind the chair. we brought in a bed that really made sense for the room. a tall headboard and footboard. notice the shiny chrome metal here with a high bench and this room was so big those side tables are breakfast room tables. >> really? >> i used them as nightstands. >> to i need to put out water like that? >> you do, yes. it brings me to fresh flowers.

>> one more living room. this was furnished before. there is another living room. let's see the after. what you have done. >> this is a large great room. the problem is the sectional was dividing the space n. the kitchen, you want to have a conversation with someone in the family room you were seeing backs of heads. we lost the sectional. we brought in two six-foot sofas. occasional chairs in the back and the room was void of color. we brought in color and live trees. it's a balanced look. >> the plants liven everything up. >> it does. >> if you are a plant killer like me they make really nice fake flowers and fake plants now. >> you're okay with that? >> two years ago, no. now, absolutely. >> jeff, thank you very much. catch "flipping out" weekednesd at 9:00 on bravo. coming up, one of the best magicians gets ready to mystify us and you at home. he's just getting fired up.
