Hong Kong protester shot by police

  • Tear gas engulf the streets of Hong Kong Oct. 27 2019

A policeman has shot at least one person in protests during Monday morning rush hour in Hong Kong.

As the two struggle, another protester in black approaches, and the officer points his gun at the second one.

The officer then fired a shot at close range and hit the protester in the stomach. Three days later, a 14-year-old boy was hit in the leg after an officer opened fire during a clash in the New Territories.

The Hospital Authority told Reuters a 21-year-old man suspected to have been wounded in Sai Wan Ho, in the eastern area of Hong Kong island, was undergoing an operation in hospital and was in critical condition. More than 3,300 people have been arrested in the protests. A video circulating on social media showed a man giving flowers to Ho and asking permission to click a photo with him.

Police fired tear gas at Chinese University, across the river from Ma On Shan in the New Territories, where students hurled petrol bombs and barricaded the campus like a fortress.

Three videos were posted on messaging channels used by protesters showing a man in a green t-shirt arguing with people on a footbridge.

Rail service was partly suspended because of fires and obstacles on the tracks and windows smashed at a branch of the state-owned Bank of China. Large parts of the downtown business district were closed to traffic as protesters surrounded by onlookers engaged in a standoff with police.

Hongkongers are furious at what they see as police brutality and meddling by Beijing in the former British colony's freedoms, guaranteed by the "one country, two systems" formula in place since it returned to Chinese rule in 1997.

The video was posted on Facebook by Cupid Producer, an outlet that started a year ago and appears to post mostly live videos related to local news.

As demonstrations continue, protesters blocked intersections around the city this morning as skirmishes broke out between protesters and police.

The city's rail operator MTR Corp. said it had shut the Whampoa, Kwai Fong and Tung Chung subway stations amid widespread vandalism and disruptions.

It's thought to be the second time police have shot someone with live rounds since the Hong Kong protests began in June. "All police officers are required to justify their enforcement actions", the statement said. Police also threw a woman to the debris-littered street and pepper-sprayed her in the face as plastic crates were thrown at officers.

Violence spread across Hong Kong on Monday, as scenes resembling urban warfare gripped the city at the start of its 23rd week of political unrest. They targeted businesses whose owners are seen as pro-Beijing and also damaged the Sha Tin train station.

Monday's shooting is the third time protesters have been shot with live rounds by police.

If the Hong Kong government boosts the powers and resources of the watchdog, it may be capable of providing an interim report on the causes and handling of the protests. The six lawmakers, who were later freed on bail, were charged with obstructing the local assembly during a raucous May 11 meeting over a now-shelved China extradition bill.

In another incident captured on video, an officer on Monday drove his motorcycle through a group of protesters on a street, brushing by several and knocking some to the ground.

Ho was campaigning for November 24 district elections to pick 452 councillors, a low-level poll held every four years but closely watched this year as a gauge of public sentiment after five months of protests increasingly marked by violence by hardcore activists and hardening positions among public officials, AP reported.
