3:20 am
china sees as adversaries. the hack, which began three years ago, rocked equifax, leading to a congressional probe. the resignation of its c.e.o., richard smith, and a settlement of up to $700 million to compensate victims of the attack. and so equifax joins a gro f compst and today, the attorney general said that 80% of economic espionage prosecutions implicate the chinese government. >> o'donnell: that's a stunning number. >> reporter: it is. >> o'donnell: thank you, jeff. tonight, two police officers in arkansas are recovering from gunshot wounds after a shootout at a walmart. the officers confronted a man who was making threats at the store. he opened fire. they fired back and killed the suspect. one of the officers needed surgery, but both are expected to be okay. tonight for the fourth time the pentagon is reporting a big jump in the number of american troops diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries following that iranian

>> reporter: the review of research confirms what many parents have long feared-- social media use is linked with mental distress, self-harm, and even suicide. in fact, more than two hours of social media use a day is associated with higher rates of depression and suicidal thoughts in girls, and in one study, girls reported feeling negative after ten minutes of browsing facebook. 17-year-old maya beahl has seen it firsthand. >> i become more isolated when i'm on social media even though it's supposed to be a connector. it's honestly very isolating. >> reporter: according to the article, kids who spend less time socializing in person are more vulnerable. and easy access online to information about how to commit suicide increases risk, too, something carol deeley knows too well. her 12-year-old son gabriel took his life just over a year ago. >> kids can't get away from all this peer pressure, and i think it's just terrible. i would not want to be a child right now.
