Hong Kong Police Shoot Protester Amid Day of Chaos

Police officers cordon off the area where a protester was shot in Hong Kong

Some protesters were seen smashing gates and flooding an MTR station in the New Territories. He was reportedly taken to a hospital. One video circulated by protesters on messaging channels showed a police officer trying repeatedly to drive his motorbike into protesters who had gathered on a road.

Many universities cancelled classes in the wake of the shooting, and as tear-gas was sacked on campuses for the first time.

Police also fired tear gas in the Central business district where some protesters, crouching behind umbrellas, blocked streets as office workers on their lunch break crowded the pavements and hurled anti-government abuse.

Chinese President Xi Jinping said Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam has his trust, during a meeting last Monday.

Footage showed a cop drawing his sidearm in Sai Wan Ho district and attempting to detain a masked man at a road junction blocked by protesters.

On Sunday, protestors vandalised a subway station and a shopping mall as the police made arrests in areas across Hong Kong. The officer fired again as a third protester approached. The pistol was sacked at the approaching protester's torso.

Hong Kong media has reported that the protester, a 21-year-old surnamed Chow, is in critical condition following operations on his liver and kidney. The statement added that the officer shot at the protester's center mass.

A police spokesperson told AFP that they had received a report on the incident and were investigating. Pistols were also drawn by police in Shatin and Tung Chung, police said.

Police called for calm and denied "false and malicious" rumours that officers had been ordered to recklessly use firearms. If they want to restore real order, I think they need to show that the government and the police force are accountable.

Police said the motorcycling officer had been suspended. This is what makes people angry and if this is not set straight, different forms of protests will continue. "All police officers are required to justify their enforcement actions".

Police cordon off the scene of the shooting.

Protesters built barricades under the hot autumn sun and set fires in the street.

But an independent inquiry into the police has become a core demand of the protest movement, with public anger fuelled by weekly videos of controversial police tactics and aggressive interactions with locals.

Policeman cordon off the site where pro-democracy protesters were shot by a policeman in Hong Kong. "Our joint priority now as a city is to end the violence and to return Hong Kong to normal as soon as possible".

People lay flowers during a vigil in Hong Kong on November 10, 2019.

Many, like Jenny Tse, braved volleys of tear gas unleashed with little protection. Students threw petrol bombs and broke windows.

Hospital authorities earlier said three people were admitted from the incident, one with a gunshot wound.

But as footage of the shooting went viral, the protests snowballed.
