reward for information on the unidentified attacker who tonya says hit four times in the past six months. >> we have cameras so we see him. we have a picture every time he does that. he climbed half way and then he threw the eggs at the door. >> do you think he knows he is caught on camera? >> i don't think he cares. >> the next door post also includes pictures of a note reportedly from the egg thrower with an oddly worded message, best you remove that sign or face some consequences. the threat back fired. another neighbor, sarah warner, saw it and put up her own impeach trump sign. >> that note was a little chilling and i felt like he was trying to intimidate us. >> neighbors we talked to say this is all about free speech but they don't expect anyone to back down. >> i don't know how much he'll do. he did it and probably will again. >> i am not someone who stays quiet when they're bullied.

>> deputies say brown also rammed the chp car, crashed into a gas pump at a 7-eleven and then tried to run away. >> a troubling crime trend in the south bay, criminals showing up in body armor ready for a fight. it happened again just yesterday during a gun fight at a vietnamese cafe. >> the remnants of the shootout are still visible here at the strip mall but the most stunning part may be something police told me. that body armor is becoming more and more common among criminals. our nbc bay area photographer spotted a shell in the strip mall parking lot this morning. police arrived a short time later to collect it as evidence and search for more. the goal? find something that explains how an apparent armed robbery turned into a shootout inside this vietnamese cafe. dan chao says a bullet ripped through his car shattering his windows. >> very scary.
everyone ran inside. >> witnesses say two or three gunmen stormed into the cafe wearing body armor yesterday. sources tell me the attempted robbery back fired but someone inside had a gun of their own. a neighbor took this picture of a gun he says police retrieved from the storm drain this morning. >> very concerned. >> concerned but not surprised that some of the suspects were wearing body armor. in fact, the president of the police union says his officers take one kevlar vest like this one off the streets every couple weeks. >> we should be concerned for our community because for someone to wear a kevlar vest, they're planning. they know there's going to be violence. they know they potentially will get in a shootout. >> sergeant paul kelly says you need a security license or other law enforcement permit to legally buy a kevlar vest in california. and apparently, the armor didn't help the would be robbers, who
were among those shot. >> they've already upped the ante three or four times. these are serious crooks. >> no word on any arrests just yet. the cafe remains closed. no word on when or if it will reopen. we're in san jose. nbc bay area news. >> a surfer had to wrestle her way out of danger after a great white shark got ahold of her surf board on tuesday at north salmon creek beach. today there are now shark warning signs posted across the beach front. the life guard says kate wilson was paddling out when the shark bit into her surf board leash. she says she tried to stay away and stay on top of the board. eventually the leash broke and wilson was able to swim to shore. >> at least a sighting once a year on our coast line here and the attacks are way more rare. but we've had a few attacks over the years and i've been around

street. >> carrying a laptop or even a bag, un, wherever you are, you should always be conscious. you know, and not to be afraid of direct eye contact. >> berkeley police say of course there have been other thefts like this in the area and their next step is taking a look at any surveillance video that they can and trying to see if there is any connection. reporting live in berkeley, christie smith, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. not the ride they expected. uber went public today but didn't get the kind of cash the company expected during its debut. in fact, some called it downright lack luster on the new york stock exchange. the san francisco company closing down 7% from its ipo of $45 a share. you may remember that lyft went public last month as well. >> some people might not like hockey but they love the money. the shark tank is ready for the next round of the playoffs and so are the bars and restaurants

having that institutional partner on your side is very powerful because of the rest of the real estate all the institutions are on the other side. now you have a partner who is helping and has your best interests in mind and it puts the homeowner back in control of owning the house which is very different than a bunch of debt and more debt where the bank is
in control. now you're back in control completely. us helping them is a very profound satisfaction. being able to bring people into a home securely that never thought they could own a house is very rewarding. the trade wara escalates ... and that means right now at 6:30, bracing for impact. the trade war with china escalating. that means shopping is about to get more expensive for you. we're talking appliances, electronics, even shampoo. all of that expected to be pricier after the president raised tariffs on chinese imports. >> is this really going to happen or is it a bargaining chip by president trump? really, the real impact, how much extra money might we be spending? >> they estimate a few hundred dollars per american. think of the word tariffs as taxes. president trump is raising them from 10% to 25% and that means he'll be paying more for things
made in china. trade talks between the u.s. and china finished for now but with no resolution. >> they were constructive discussions between both parties. that's all we're going to say. >> reporter: the u.s. escalating the trade war overnight, sharply raising tariffs from 10% to 25% on $200 billion worth of imported chinese goods. for president trump, a bargaining tool. >> i happen to think the tariffs for our country are very powerful. >> reporter: this morning in a flurry of tweets the president defending his strategy writing the talks are moving in a very congenial manner. there is absolutely no he need to rush, adding tariffs will bring in far more wealth to the u.s. >> despite what the president says we know from history going back to the 1930s and other periods where you see a full scale trade war among countries around the world, it could cause a recession. it could cause the global economy to tip over. it's a dangerous game to play. >> reporter: what could increased tariffs mean for you?
higher prices on everything from cars to appliances to smart phones and shoes and fears china could further retaliate raising tariffs on american goods. some farmers say that's bad news. >> it's challenging being the point man in this war that, considering we had the low prices and now the prices are even lower because of the tariffs. >> reporter: the uncertainty is enough to send stock markets falling this week. both sides say they will continue talks in the future. at this time no new trade talks scheduled but a bit of good news today. it didn't affect the stock markets as much as some expected. raj? >> okay, janelle. thank you. the house of representatives passed a $19 billion bill and the president is not thrilled about it. he tweeted last night, quote, house republicans should not vote for the bad democrat disaster supplemental bill which hurts our state, farmers, and border security. the bill will give relief to farmers and victims of hurricanes and floods. republicans that are against the bill thought it should have
