He was taken to Prince of Wales Hospital.

A man has been set on fire following an apparent dispute over national identity in Hong Kong, where police shot a protester on a day of escalating violence. All classes were cancelled.

People run into a shopping mall after police fired tear gas in the Central district of Hong Kong.

The papers quoted a law enforcement source as saying that there was "no correlation", nor did the tougher tactics have anything to do with Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam's surprise meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping last week and her visit to Beijing to meet a deputy premier in charge of Beijing's top taskforce on the city.

As demonstrations continue, protesters blocked intersections around the city this morning as skirmishes broke out between protesters and police. The pistol was sacked at the approaching protester's torso. He then fires at a second protester from point-blank range.

In a follow-up video posted on social media, the man is then seen chasing after his alleged attackers.

Hours later, northeast of central Hong Kong, a man was set on fire on a footbridge in Ma On Shan.

Police said that only one protester was hit and is undergoing surgery.

Many students joined the protests, prompting the police to invade campuses to round up demonstrators.

RTHK reported that the video operator began crying when he realised what had happened.

Maddinson out of Pakistan clash over mental health issues
Meanwhile, Maddinson must be lauded for his decision to speak out and handle this hard situation well. Mental health is becoming a far more prevalent issue in Australian cricket than before.

"You can imagine that if you work constant overtime, you need to be cautious communicating with your friends, you can imagine the enormous pressure", said Dr Lawrence Ka-ki Ho, an assistant professor at the Education University of Hong Kong who studies policing and public order management. Pistols were also drawn by police in Shatin and Tung Chung, police said.

The dramatic scene was caught on video, as demonstrators blocked train lines and roads during the morning commute.

Police called for calm and denied "false and malicious" rumours that officers had been ordered to recklessly use firearms. They were injured in two of the most high-profile incidents on a day that saw police use tear gas and water cannons against protesters in turn who threw bricks and Molotov cocktails.

"One of the most unsafe things any police officer can do is move away independently", said Professor Clifford Stott of Keele University in the United Kingdom, who was one of the experts on an worldwide panel appointed to advise Hong Kong's Independent Police Complaints Council on the protests.

Another officer who had driven his motorcycle repeatedly into a crowd of protesters in Kwai Fong in a separate incident had been suspended from all frontline duties, he said. One traffic officer, who was not in riot gear, arrested a person. "I am willing to sacrifice my life for Hong Kong". "These are not policing measures - these are officers out of control with a mindset of retaliation".

The latest violence comes after a student died on Friday after falling from a ledge in a vehicle park, reportedly trying to flee from police tear gas. A Hospital Authority spokesman said one person with a gunshot injury was critical, while police said earlier in the morning that two demonstrators had been shot and were conscious as they were taken to the hospital.

They did not comment immediately on the shooting.

Protesters used barricades to block roads in various areas, leading to long traffic jams.

Angry crowds confronted police officers, who deployed pepper spray in return.
