Hong Kong police officers have pulled their guns and reportedly shot a warning shot after they were attacked by protesters with sticks and rods.
The protesters called the police “gangsters” as they chased them on Sunday night following a standoff with police earlier in the evening.
Public broadcaster RTHK says one of its reporters saw a uniformed officer fire a shot into the sky.
The incident happened after police used tear gas to clear a large group of protesters who had occupied a street in the outlying Tsuen Wan district. Some remained in the neighborhood after the clearing operation.
