Autopsy: Black teen fatally shot in the head by police

Crowds gathered in St. Louis Thursday night to hold a candlelight vigil for 18-year-old Vonderrit Deondre Myers.

The black teen was shot by a white officer just 12 miles from the spot where Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri.

Autopsy results show Myers was hit 7 to 8 times by bullets from the off-duty police officer. The fatal shot was to the head.

The officer fired at least 17 shots.

Protests over the shooting have turned violent with angry residents charging at police, kicking their cars, even smashing car windows.

This has once again led to increased tension between residents and local Missouri police officers.

CNN's Van Jones, a former member of the Obama administration, and Neil Bruntrager, the General Counsel for the St. Louis Police Officers Association are OutFront.

Police seize cab owned by suspect in missing UVA student case

The man at the center of missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham's disappearance and charged with her abduction has been linked to at least one other unsolved case.

A source with knowledge of the investigation confirms to CNN that police recently seized a cab owned by Jesse Matthew. As previously reported, Matthew was working as a cab driver the night 20-year-old Morgan Harrington disappeared.

Police say the cab was found on a local farm, which could be meaningful. Harrington's remains were found on a farm outside of Charlottesville three months after she vanished and police have forensic evidence that also links Matthew to her case.

This is significant because Matthew is the last person to be seen with Hannah Graham who disappeared nearly three weeks ago.
Jean Casarez has been following the story and is Outfront.

Where in the world is Kim Jong Un?

The world is waiting for a major political event in North Korea for any sign of its young leader, who has not been seen in over a month.

His mysterious disappearance has been fueling a frenzy of rumor and speculation because Kim Jong Un has never been camera-shy.

Since the beginning of 2013, he has made at least seven public appearances each month. But on September 3rd, the photo ops suddenly stopped.

The longer Kim Jong Un remains out of sight, the more speculation intensifies about who is controlling the most isolated country on earth.

Ebola's patient family: Thomas Eric Duncan "treated unfairly"

The family of the first man to die of Ebola in the U.S. is speaking out, saying Thomas Eric Duncan's "was treated unfairly."

In an exclusive statement to OutFront, Josephus Weeks, Duncan's nephew, says:

"Eric Duncan was treated unfairly. Eric walked into the hospital, the other patients were carried in after an 18 hour flight.

It is suspicious to us that all the white patients survived and this one black patient passed away.

It took 8 days to get him medicine. He didn't begin treatment in Africa, he began treatment here, but he wasn't given a chance.

We need all the help we can get, no matter how small it is. All would be accepted and would be highly appreciated."

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, which treated Thomas Eric Duncan, also put out a statement saying, in part:

"Mr. Duncan’s physicians treated him with the most appropriate and available medical interventions, including the investigative antiviral drug Brincidofovir. Mr. Duncan was the first Ebola patient to receive this drug.

Mr. Duncan did not receive the same type of serum transfusion as the patient in Nebraska because his blood type was not compatible with the serum donors.

A team of more than 50 people cared for him in a professional and compassionate manner.

Our care team provided Mr. Duncan with the same high level of attention and care that would be given any patient, regardless of nationality or ability to pay for care. We have a long history of treating a multicultural community in this area."

Did race play a factor in Duncan's treatment? Ed Lavandera is OutFront.

Also weighing in:CNN's Chief Medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, and Dr. Ivan Walks, The Former District Of Columbia Chief Medical Officer.
