Hong Kong protester shot by law enforcement

Police forces responsible for securing the order in the six-month Hong Kong protests shot at least one protester, firing a bullet into his chest. According to witnesses, gun shots were also fired after the young man was shot, with no other victims being recorded.

According to local sources, law enforcement, in collision with another protester, fired three firearms at the other protesters to counter the protest movement, one of them injuring the unarmed 21-year-old.

In the communiqué issued by the local police, they did not provide incident information, but pointed to the effects that "radical protesters" determine, "causing severe traffic obstructions", after they installed numerous barricades in the city.

According to local news sources, the 21-year-old underwent surgery following the shooting, and his condition is stable. According to other local sources, it is still in critical condition.
