 Good Tuesday afternoon, East Texans!

Here are some stories for you to check out today:

1. Police have released photos from a bank robbery that happened yesterday afternoon at the Austin Bank inside Bar-K Convenience store north of Longview. We talked to the store's manager, and you can read what she saw yesterday here.  By the way, if you have information on the robbery, make sure to call the Gregg Co. Sheriff's Office at 903-237-2529.

2. The jury in the Dennis Bendy murder trial deliberated fewer than two hours today, and found him guilty of killing Briana Young in the park last summer. Join us tonight on East Texas News at 5 and 6 for more on this story.

3. A sad report today regarding the death of Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams.  Williams hanged himself, according to the Lt. Keith Boyd, the assistant deputy chief coroner in Marin County, CA. Toxicology results will not be released for at least a month.

4. Because we all loved the comic genius of Robin Williams, we are sharing some bittersweet moments, reflecting upon his career in this slideshow.

5. A beer burglar seems to be on the prowl in a Texas town. Police say the suspect is breaking into garages and stealing some alcoholic beverages.Gregg Shell realized someone had gone into his garage overnight, and stolen about 8 beers out of his fridge. He said, "The beer is irrelevant at this point. It's the fact that someone is in my area when they shouldn't be."

6. There have been three bank robberies in two days here in East Texas. What is going on here? Make sure to watch East Texas News at 5 for the details about all three robberies, what police are telling us, and witness accounts, and at 6, we'll dive into what is possibly driving these robberies in such a short time.

7. There are four seasons in Texas: Winter, spring, summer, and football. It's not going to be long before The Red Zone kicks off (August 29!) and we're all ready for it. Check out our sports page, where we're already talking football with the coaches at John Tyler, Chapel Hill, Tyler Lee, Whitehouse, and more. Big news coming soon for Red Zone fans! Stay with KLTV for the latest and best in sports coverage!
