Protester shot by police, trail of destruction across Hong Kong, while Beijing celebrates National Day

China’s grand celebration to mark the 70th anniversary of communist rule was marred by
violent protests in Hong Kong on Tuesday, with a police officer opening fire at a protester for the first time, injuring him in the chest. Video footage showed the officer firing at the 18-year-old student who, along with other protesters, was trying to attack him and another officer during a scuffle. The student from Tsuen Wan Public Ho Chuen Yiu Memorial College was transferred from Princess Margaret Hospital to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he underwent surgery. He was in a stable condition on Wednesday.
