7:07 am
days. our reporter debora patta is in hong kong. debora, how is beijing going to respond to these protests. >> reporter: good morning m. things have returned back to normal at this airport, but they're calling the protests an act of terrorism. in these newly released photos, we show chinese military vehicles being moved into a sports stadium reportedly along the chinese border. armed with pepper spray and swinging batons, riot police stormed hong kong's international airport last night, initially trying to help first responders reach two injured men. the protesters gave chase and seized the officer's baton and used it on him, only stopping when he retreated and pulled out a gun. these men felt the full brunt of protesters' rage. in two separate incidents, they
7:08 am
were kicked, beaten, punched and drenched in water. protesters were convinced they were undercover china posing as one of them. this man was bound in cable ties and left on the ground in a fetal position. finally emergency workers were allowed to take them away. hong kong lawmaker fernando cheung rushed to the airport to assist when the violence erupted. >> there were signs people were getting ready to fight. many young people are ready to sacrifice themselves, and we don't want to see that happen. >> reporter: for two consecutive days, protesters paralyzed airport operations. hundreds of flights were canceled. travelers are fed up. >> come on! come on! you're being really selfish now. >> r reporter: this morning protesters held signs at the airport apologizing for their actions, but a collision course has now been set with both
7:09 am
police and protesters more quick to use force. now, china can only intervene in hong kong's affairs if they request military assistance, and most hong kongers here think that will be a step too far for china and that a tianenman square crackdown is unlikely. gayle? >> debora patta in hong kong. those pictures are still difficult to watch. imagine getting off a plane to that. now china could pay the price for the ongoing tariff war. the president has decided not to put tariffs on dozens of chinese goods. what does this decision mean now for u.s. companies and consumers? >> reporter: good morning, gayle. this is good news because it means that tariffs are not driving up the prices of some of the most popular goods from china. but the release is temporary. and it's unclear if delaying the tariffs will actually help
7:10 am
facilitate a permanent trade deal. >> they ripped off our country for years. >> reporter: president trump didn't back off from his usual attacks against china tuesday, even as he backed down on new tariffs against its imports. >> we're doing this for the christmas season just in case some of the tariffs would have an impact on u.s. customers. >> the administration put a 10% tariff on about $300 billion on chinese goods. laptops, shoes, some clothing will not be taxed until then. it would have cost the average american household an extra $270 a year and would have been in addition to the 25% tariff already in place on $250 billion of chinese imports. >> the only impact has been that we've collected almost $16 billion from china. >> reporter: but it was actually american industries that had to
7:11 am
pay the fees for chinese products. consumer groups pressured the administration to hold off on more tariffs because corporations will eventually have to pass the costs to customers. apple ceo tim cook spoke with norah o'donnell in june. >> the truth is the iphone is made everywhere. it's made everywhere. and so a tariff on the iphone would hurt all of those countries, but the one that would be hurt the most is this one. >> isaac stone fish is at the asia society administration. >> having different prices, having different tariff announcements come and go makes it really difficult to plan. >> reporter: president trump said the calls with china were very productive, but this move does not offer any relief to those farmers still hurting from retaliatory tariffs. and as his reelection campaign ramps up, the president has

every reason to try to end this trade war for hard-hit states like iowa, especially before the caucuses. tony? >> weijia, thanks. a new timeline of the dayton, ohio massacre provides chilling details about the shooter's movements. this new surveillance video shows moments before the gunman killed nine people in a span of just 32 seconds ten days ago. 26 others were wounded. dean reynolds has been following this story. dean, are investigators nany closer to learning a motive here? >> reporter: they are not, anthony. they have not yet established a motive, but they do believe the gunman acted alone. his own sister was among the victims, but investigators remain divided on whether he intentionally targeted her. two hours before beginning his violent rampage, 24-year-old conner betts, his sister and a friend are seen on surveillance
7:13 am
video seemingly headed for a night of barhopping. their first stop, a place called blind bob's. just after midnight, betts crosses the street and heads to another bar, separating from his sister and friend. at 12:42, wearing a t-shirt and shorts, he heads back to the car and reemerges in a hoodie, body armor and backpack, weighted by his weapon and ammunition. minutes later at 1:05 a.m., the shooting begins. >> shots fired! shots fired! >> reporter: the crowd on the patio of a bar scatters. the gunfire lasts for 32 seconds before police stop it. >> we ever a number of people shot. >> reporter: betts' sister was shot to death and his friend was wounded. text messages revealed that betts knew their location about seven minutes before opening fire. but investigators say they can't agree whether he targeted them. >> some say absolutely not, it was not intentional.
7:14 am
some say it had to be. i would say it's inconclusive. >> reporter: some say nobody knew of his violent intentions that night and they're still searching for a motive. >> i think it should be enough thematically that you can get a clear picture of what was going on here. >> reporter: police say the gunman was very familiar with the area and its night spots and was actually there on that street the night before his rampage. tony? >> dean reynolds for us. dean, thank you very much. there are new warnings this morning about a possible link between severe lung disease in teenagers and e-cigarettes and vaping. minnesota is now the third state where serious lung injuries were reported in just the past month. ctm consumer investigative correspondent anna werner has been looking into these e-cigarette concerns. i know there are a lot of questions about these cases, but what are we learning? >> these four minnesota cases, tony, involved 16 to 18-year-old
7:15 am
teenagers who wound up at children's minnesota, the children's hospital there. i spoke with the chief medical officer, dr. emily chapman, who told me about a pattern of cases with a similar but unusual path. now, these teens at first had symptoms that suggested a viral or bacterial infection, but doctors determined their lungs had actually sustained some kind of acute injury and then the lungs began to fail. some of the teenagers even had to be put on ventilators to save their lives. dr. chapman says her doctors cannot yet identify a factor like a particular brand of e-cigarette, a drug or oil, but the state department of health says use of both nicotine and marijuana-based products were reported. at least 22 similar cases have been reported in wisconsin, illinois and minnesota in the past month. health officials are still investigating these cases and any possible connections. the american vaping association
7:16 am
tells us that with approximately 10 million adults vaping nicotine each month without major issue, they say it appears much more likely that the products causing lung damage contain thc or illegal drugs, not nicotine. so far nobody can really say for sure. dr. chapman wants patients and families to know if symptoms get worse, or you and a loved one i pneumonia, be sure to tell your doctor if you use e-cigarettes, which can be an issue with teenagers who may not want to admit it. and then we've heard kids asked, do you use nicotine cigarettes? they say no. and then they ask, do you use juul? they say, yeah, i use juul. we're not saying juul is to blame for all of these, but there is a distinction for teens
7:17 am
between nicotine and juul. you have to ask these kids. the fbi says a shooting at an i.c.e. office in san antonio was a targeted attack. investigators say they fired into the office. no one was hurt but people were ntsd. they believe political rhetoric and misinformation encouraged the incident. no arrests have been made. there are big changes underway here at cbs. have you heard? our company has announced a merger with via come called viacomcbs. it will be worth with $28 billion it will control the largest television business in this country reaching more than 4.3 billion tv customers in more than 180 million customers. bob backish will serve as ceo --
