5:02 am
might have been shot. you can see the scene here as the investigation continues. it started with an armed robbery around 3 a.m. at least two robbers pulled a gun on a man who was walking down the street. they took his wallet and cell phone and ran off. but police just happened to be in the area and arrested those guys as they fled. police then found a pool of blood nearby on bartlett street and a trail of blood. it looks like somebody had been shot. police think it may have been a third suspect. >> we do believe that there's a good possibility that the victim or i should say the suspect shot himself but we are still trying to figure it out. >> police are at the hospital now checking to see if any shooting victims have come in. and they did recover a gun here at the scene as i mentioned. it was a mac-10 semi-automatic. they are not sure how that may or may not have been related to this crime. live at san francisco's mission

district. anne makevoc, kpix 5. this morning, the search for two murderers who broke out of prison is focused on a single town in upstate new york. overnight police descended on cadyville near the prison. across state lines authorities in vermont have been distributing wanted posters. the inmates talked about how there would be less police on the ground to search for them in vermont. >> we have information that suggests that they thought that new york was going to be hot, vermont would be cooler, in terms of law enforcement. >> cbs news says a prison worker named joyce mitchell was allegedly supposed to pick them up after they escaped using power tools. instead, officials say she sought treatment for a panic attack. so far she has not been named as a suspect. time now 5:03. an american has died fighting against "islamic state" militants in syria. the u.s. state department says 36-year-old keith broom field was not with the u.s. military. he was killed as he fought

5:05 am
but not change. most house republicans favor the senate passed bill but democrats are opposed and in part they disagree on how to pay for a program to retrain workers displaced by trade agreements. chinese hackers who cracked the databases of the office of personnel management could use that information for blackmail. the "new york times" reporting investigators say the hackers may have collected the names of chinese relatives, friends and frequent associates of american diplomats, other top government officials. hackers inserted malware into the government system last december. the breach was discovered in april. the house has passed a resolution urging state and local police departments to use body cameras. the vote was nearly unanimous 421-6. it comes after several high-profile police shootings and use of force controversies. a democratic congressman from texas sponsored the resolution. he said body cameras can bring much-needed transparency while also protecting officers
5:06 am
against false allegations. in another vote in the house of representatives, they have voted to repeal a law that requires labels on meat showing what country it came from. last month the world trade organization ruled against the law saying it discriminated against canada and mexico. the house vote yesterday was aimed at avoiding trade retaliation from those two countries and many in the american meat industry have called for a repeal. an arson suspect is in custody in connection with a fire that caused $100,000 in damage at an auto dealership. 46-year-old john allen bixler booked into marin county jail yesterday. the fire began monday night at the novato chevrolet dealership on redwood boulevard. police say bixler set one car on fire and the flames spread to three other cars there. police got surveillance video here from a nearby business that shows a man with a backpack in the area and when that car burst into flames, it's not clear whether the video helped lead to the arrest. so far police are not revealing

5:35 am
near where those guys were running. police say one of the robbers accidentally shot himself in the leg. he is now in the hospital. police did find a high-powered gun nearby that somebody had tossed over a fence. it was a mac-10 semi-automatic that may or may not be connected to this crime. they were also on the hunt for a third suspect. at this point they don't know if there is an outstanding suspect. two men in custody. one man who had been robbed is okay. the investigation continues. in the mission anne makevoc, kpix 5. search is on at danville to find whoever vandalized a war memorial there. police say on sunday night someone spray-painted the words let's get high and other words and drawings on the all wars memorial in oak hill park. since then the city has done its best to remove all that graffiti. but much of the paint is still there. today san francisco mayor ed lee will be at a ribbon- cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of an affordable

5:38 am
start? >> reporter: start at the beginning. how do you balance a checkbook? and then you want to introduce budgeting concepts and cover credit card basics. i want to stress the credit card stuff here because we want to tell our kids balances have to be paid back in full each month, otherwise there will be very high interest rates applied. if you plan on cosigning a credit card, i know a lot of parents do this when they are sending their kids off to college, you have to explain to your kids that you are marrying your credit history for better or for worse. remind them that paying bills late can hurt their credit history. it may even affect their chances of getting a job or renting their first apartment. >> credit card companies love college students. so what do working teenagers need to know? >> reporter: they are going to start completing tax forms. so that's a great time to discuss the difference between gross and net pay. now that moment in time where you say, where did all my money go? you can be the bad guy and

5:40 am
taxable income. and, of course, those tips are subject to taxes. for more on how to talk to your kids about money, there's a great website moneyasyougrow.org. >> thank you, jill schlesinger. attention airline passengers. you may soon have to check the bag you now consider a carry- on. here are the industry's new recommendations for a standard carry-on. it's about an inch smaller all the way around than the bag many airlines currently allow in overhead bins. it's up to the individual airlines whether to follow those recommendations. it is 5:40. a little basketball tonight. and a warriors fan found an unusual way to get drivers excited for game 4 coming up. >> a live look out at 880 in oakland, not looking too bad on the roads. there anyway. gianna will let us know what to expect for the
