At least nine people are dead and one person is missing after a flash flood plowed through the popular Cold Springs Swimming Hole in Payson, Ariz., the local Gila County Sheriff's Office says.

The search in the Tonto National Forest has been suspended for the night but it is expected to resume Monday, officials say.

Legendary filmmaker George A. Romero, best known for directing the classic horror movie, Night of the Living Dead, has died. He was 77.

Romero's death was confirmed by his manager, Chris Roe, in a statement to NPR.

Roe said Romero passed away peacefully in his sleep Sunday while listening to the score of one of his all-time favorite films, The Quiet Man. His wife, Suzanne Desrocher Romero and daughter, Tina Romero were at his side. Romero had been battling lung cancer.

Riot police descended in downtown Portland, Ore., Sunday to bring calm among thousands of demonstrators who converged for competing rallies in the wake of the racially charged stabbing that claimed the lives of two men.
